Torah Study

Our clergy leads Torah study most Saturdays from 9:00-10:00 am. No prior experience is needed; the sessions are not cumulative. Participants are never put on the spot. Coffee is served along with meaningful conversations, wonderful people, laughter, questions, answers, and a few “aha!” moments.

Lunch & Learn

Rabbi Taron Tachman leads a series of monthly discussions on various aspects of Jewish life from October through May. This eight session course meets at 12:00 pm on the third Thursday of each month.

Book Club

The Beth Tikvah Book Club, sponsored by Adult Education, meets at 7:00pm on the first Monday of each month in the Temple, adjusted for holidays. We have for a lively discussion of a book we’ve selected and read. The chosen books have a connection to Judaism, and may be historical, cultural, fictional, or non-fiction.

Beth Tikvah Library

Whether you're carpooling to Religious School, and need appropriate theme music CDs like "Lots of Latkes" or the Aleph Bet song, or you're looking for a great read with a Jewish connection, the Beth Tikvah Library hosts thousands of materials in both English and Hebrew.
