Grow in your facility to read Hebrew. The focus of the class is prayerbook Hebrew, and meets twice a month with Rabbi Cohen on Sundays at 3:00 p.m.
J.A.M. with Rabbi
J.A.M. (Jewish Adventure Meeting) is a guided tour of Biblical, rabbinic, philosophical, mystical and contemporary Jewish literature. The Jewish tradition contains breadth and depth. The aim of this course is to provide a bit of both that breadth and depth. This class, taught by Rabbi Cohen, is for anyone who would like to engage in sophisticated Jewish learning. The class meets twice monthly on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.
In this long-standing class, students study traditional Jewish texts and other material--growing simultaneously in knowledge and the ability to work with jewish text. The thought-provoking discussions take place twice a month on Sundays from 2:30-4:00 p.m. in the Temple library.

Through a variety of texts, we will explore the nature and meaning of Jewish identity once a month on Shabbat mornings at 10:30 a.m. Following the discussion, enjoy a potluck lunch. The Temple will provide beverages, Rabbi Cohen will make soup, and attendees are asked to bring a dish to share.
