Lifeling Learning

Lifelong Learning at Temple Beth El is a diverse and inclusive program.  We offer Jewish and community-themed programs, classes and discussions.  Topics include language, history, spirituality, life cycle, Israel, culture and more.  

Classes – We offer a wide variety of life-enriching classes at all stages of life.   Recent offerings include everything from Parenting Jewish Teens, to Wise Aging, to Being Mortal, and Beginning Biblical Hebrew to Judaism as a Spiritual Journey to Introduction to Talmud. 

Programs – In addition to classes we offer other opportunities to gather with experts and others in conversation on topics of interest to the greater community.  Recent Salons have covered topics such as Israel's history, politics and culture, Jewish culture around the world, social justice and, of course, food including history, cultural differences and tasting!  The twice-monthly Senior Connections program offers opportunities to hear scholars and artists share their insights about Jewish life and history. There is even a great Jewish book club.

Kavod Conversations
with Holly Blue Hawkins and Rose Ashford

October 11, November 8, December 13, January 10, 7:00‒8:30 PM
How we die is part of our legacy, but few of us have thought about our end-of-life wishes or communicated with our loved ones about this important topic. Your Advance Care Directive is only the beginning. Gain insights and strategies for having the conversations that will help ensure your wishes for care through the end of life are respected and implemented. Practical help with the documents will also be given. Please check the weekly email for the topic for each session. Co-sponsored with Chadeish Yameinu.
