Adult Education

The Jewish spiritual tradition teaches us the model of The Four Worlds: practical skills, emotional development, intellectual growth and spiritual practices. Our program of adult education touches all four worlds.

TI members have formed an Adult Education Committee, identifying new and different options so more people could connect and meet each other around common interests. We hope each half-year to gradually expand AE offerings and welcome ideas. We offer a variety of classes, events, and seminars geared toward deepening Jewish knowledge, practice, and culture. Some are taught by the Rabbi and some by other knowledgeable congregants or visiting experts.

If there are topics of interest to you or something that you have expertise in and would like to teach, please let us know.
