Jewish Learning is a lifetime endeavor!
At Temple B’nai Torah, we offer a variety of opportunities to engage with the community through guest speakers, classes, trips, movies, and books. In addition, we co-sponsor Endless Opportunities. Endless Opportunities is a community based program offering a variety of activities tailored for Jewish adults ages 60+ which take place throughout the Seattle area. We look forward to seeing you at our ongoing adult education events.
Upcoming Adult Education Events
Movie Night, Documentary & Book Read
Movie Night: Keeping the Faith
Saturday, January 20 at 4:30 PM
Escape the rain and join us for a fun movie night at TBT! We’ll be watching Keeping the Faith, starring Ben Stiller, Edward Norton and Jenna Elfman. Two friends, a priest and a rabbi, fall in love with the same woman they knew in their youth, but the religious position of both men denies them romance.
Documentary: The Road to Krasnostav with Sam Menaker
Saturday, February 3 at 4:30 PM
Before the war, two communities in Ukraine lived side by side, but on August 31, 1941 everything changed. This film explores the destruction of a shtetl and raises questions that are still relevant today. TBT member Sam Menaker, whose family is the focus of this documentary, will join us for a presentation and discussion.
Book Read: The Rabbi’s Cat by Joann Sfar
Saturday, March 3 at 4:30 PM
Join us to discuss The Rabbi’s Cat, a graphic novel written and illustrated by one of France’s most celebrated young comic artists. Set in Algeria in the 1930s, The Rabbi’s Cat tells the unique story of a rabbi, his daughter, and their talking cat — a philosopher brimming with scathing humor and surprising tenderness. (Please read the book beforehand.)
