Center for Jewish Life and Learning

 

Temple Kol Emeth is excited to launch the Center for Jewish Life and Learning at TKE!  Through the Center, we will offer an array of different learning opportunities for adults (regardless of background or prior Jewish knowledge). 

Saturday Torah Study

Live your best life! Join us for Torah study and learn about how our beautiful ancient tradition can inspire your everyday life. Join Rabbi Sernovitz on Saturday mornings at 9:00 a.m. as he leads you on a journey through generations of our people who grappled with similar issues that we see in our world today. Torah Study lasts about an hour and is usually hybrid (in-person and on Zoom). Learners of all levels are welcome, and you do not need to know Hebrew to participate. Find meaning and purpose in our ancient texts. Click the link below to join Torah Study by Zoom.

Fall 2022 Courses with Rabbi Sernovitz in partnership with the Hadar Institute

Intro to the Jewish Bookshelf: Sundays, 9:00-10:00 a.m. for 7 weeks throughout the fall
In this course, we'll take a close look at the essential core texts that make up the Jewish Bookshelf. Beginning with the Torah, we will learn what these texts are, how they work, and use them as an entryway into conversations about creation in the Torah, self-defense in rabbinic texts, and revelation through the eyes of modern thinkers.


The Balancing Act: Being a Jewish Parent: Sundays, 10:15-11:15 a.m. Sept. 11 and 18 
and Oct. 9
This 3-session course uses text-study as a mode to explore the multiple demands and values that are constantly tugging at Jewish parents. What from your own parent(s) are you trying to pass on to your kids? When should you prioritize yourself over your kids? What does it meant to raise a child as Jewish?

For more details on both courses, and to register, please click here.
