Adult Education

“One of the things that makes Temple Beth David such an extraordinary community is our commitment to excellence in Adult Education.  In addition to the support of our clergy and our board, that excellence comes from the passionate involvement of our congregants themselves.”  Pat Aronson, Vice President of Education (2013-2015)

The Adult Education Committee at Temple Beth David works to create a dynamic, enriching, and meaningful learning environment. Our mission is to provide opportunities to explore our inner selves in a welcoming atmosphere that will lead to further understanding and friendship. Topics include Jewish customs and practice, the study of Jewish texts, aspects of spirituality, and issues pertinent to contemporary Jewish and Israeli life. The programming is intended for both inexperienced and experienced learners. As Hillel said, “If not now, when?” Come join our learning Kehillah (community), and become inspired!

If you would like more information or would like to join the Adult Education committee, please contact Renee Goldberg.
