Adult Learning and Engagement

Our Mission

 Temple Emanuel will create innovative opportunities to engage, inspire and challenge our community.  With a focus on building meaningful relationships amongst our adult population we will explore: Jewish education and literacy, Tikkun Olam, Jewish identity, and joyful celebration.  We recognize this exciting time to invest in your personal connection to your Judaism and the Temple Emanuel community.  We look forward to partnering with you.

Current Program Series Offered

Anshei Mitzvah. Designed for adults who are seeking to renew their connection with God and community in maturity, after finding little spiritual energy in the Judaism of their youth and/or for adults who were not born into Jewish families who are finding themselves attracted to Jewish spiritual life and seek initiation into a Judaism that feels compelling and meaningful.
Bubbe’s Kitchen. Have you ever wondered what Jewish people are eating besides matzo ball soup and bagels?  Join us for four fun-filled, hands-on workshops where we will learn what Jews are eating in Spain, Morocco, South America, Israel, and Greece.  In these classes, Bubbes will share their culinary specialties with you and you will have chance to make and take home goodies for you family.  These classes will meet on October 17th , December 19th, February 20th, and  April 16th at 6:30 p.m.  The cost for each class is $15.00. For more information please contact Sarah Brown.
How to Jewish. Have you ever wondered how to integrate Judaism into your everyday life? Or how to participate and sing in services?  Or the meaning behind Jewish holidays?  How to Jewish is a series designed to answer your questions about these topics and beyond.  Join us as we learn about ways to celebrate High Holy Days, how to prepare of a Passover seder, and much more.  These classes will be taught by different Jewish community members at Temple Emanuel.  You will walk away with practical information about How to Jewish in your own homes.  Classes will be held on September 10th, November 12th, January 14th, and March 24th at 6:30 pm.  For more information please contact Sarah Brown here.
