    Adult B'Mitzvah Class

    Tuesday, May 7th 6:00p to 6:45p
    Everyone over the age of 13 is a “child of the commandments,” a B’Mitzvah. But there are many who did not have the in-depth study or the opportunity to read from the Torah at that young age. Join this year’s Adult B’Mitzvah cohort to deepen your Jewish learning, get to know a group of TBT members better and culminate the year in chanting from the Torah in a special Shabbat ceremony.

Past Adult Education Programs

Join this discussion, sponsored by TBT's Sisterhood, about the miniseries Unorthodox, the story of a Hasidic woman in Brooklyn who runs away to Berlin to find new freedom. Watch the first episode on Netflix ahead of time and then gather for the discussion.

Ever since the Torah has been our core text there have been efforts to provide deeper insights into its meaning. Join Rabbi Mirel and explore how Midrash delves into the mysteries of Torah.

Ira Glass of This American Life says, “Great stories happen to people who know how to tell them.” Do you want to get better at captivating listeners? Whether you want to tell your story at the synagogue's Passover show on March 28 (more details on that coming soon), in a business meeting or college interview, or at the family table, professional storyteller Terry Wolfisch Cole of Tell Me Another will teach you the Moth-style skills you need to engage any audience.

The next Jewish History Chavurah discussion will be about Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project by Jack Mayer. During World War II, Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker, organized a rescue network of fellow social workers to save 2,500 Jewish children from certain death in the Warsaw ghetto. Incredibly, after the war her heroism, like that of many others, was suppressed by communist Poland and remained virtually unknown for 60 years. Unknown, that is, until three high school girls from an economically depressed, rural school district in southeast Kansas stumbled upon a tantalizing reference to Sendler's rescues, which they fashioned into a history project, a play they called Life in a Jar.

Morning Blessings
Start your Tuesday mornings with a blessing! Each week, we'll spend a little time learning about one of the blessings in our morning service and then we'll conclude by singing that blessing together.
