Microsoft word - adult education brochure version 6

“The more Torah the more life; the more study the more wisdom” If Temple David has tripled its Adult Education offerings, does that mean it has become three times as lively and grown as a source of wisdom three-fold? After all, Pirke Avot teaches us “The more Torah -the more life; the more study- the more wisdom.” The Temple’s current learning program is built on a firm foundational trio established many years ago - offering “Introductory Hebrew”, “Intermediate Hebrew,” and “Discovering Judaism” on Wednesday evenings. With the arrival of Rabbi Sheryl, nearly a year and a half ago, the mid-week program quickly evolved to include “Beyond Basic Judaism” and multiple Intermediate Hebrew classes as well as Conversational Hebrew. Learners in “Beyond Basic Judaism” have enjoyed mini-courses exploring topics ranging from “Rabbinic Texts: Pirke Avot” to “Megillat Esther in Midrash and Modern Thought”. In addition to our expanded Wednesday Night offerings, two fortnightly series have been initiated. Helen Bryant introduced twice monthly Tuesday “Torah, Tea and Text” where learners explore a broad range of topics ranging from Biblical Criticism to the Life and Times of Maimonides and often base discussion and learning on Parshat Hashavua. Additionally, Rabbi Sheryl Nosan-Blank’s “Cafe Kavanah” (the first and third Shabbat morning of the month prior to services) de-mystifies the Zohar and other spiritual texts; a unique practical approach is followed, applying Kabbalah to daily conduct. While some people enjoy formal classes, others prefer more “informal education.” The Temple provides learning venues of the informal type through the Temple David Religion School as well as through Rabbi Sheryl’s “You’re Invited” programs. Parents can get involved in programs for tots through to Grade 7 by participating in Family Education programs at TDRS (Pre-Holiday Family Activity Days), and monthly Tot Shabbat . Parents can also participate with their children in the lively learning and prayer which takes place at the start of each weekly Religion School Shabbat- at the prayer circle. The Temple’s final informal learning venue is the Rabbi’s “You’re Invited” initiative. Rabbi Sheryl invites those interested to join her exploring Judaism in innovative ways, which have so far included “Jewish Yoga” and “Tu B’Shevat Seder-Picnic in the Park.” The Rabbi’s forthcoming invitations will include “Motzi and Movies”, “Challah and Chassidic Stories”. When the Temple’s Adult Educational offerings are combined with Programs for Special Ages and Stages (such as Tot Shabbat, Netzer Youth Group and Senior Kiddush Lunches) Temple David has become a place of more life, more study, more wisdom and more Torah. By tripling its Adult Education offerings, the Temple proudly joins its sister synagogues in enriching Jewish Perth and providing more options for Jewish people, and those interested in Judaism, in our community. Moreover, as part of the Progressive movement, we join our sister Progressive Temples as a centre of Life Long Jewish Learning and Living. Enrich YOUR life, and increase your wisdom by joining Temple David’s learners and teachers – there is a seat waiting for you at the table, new friends to make, new ideas to consider and perhaps even new facets of your spiritual life to discover! Beyond Basic Judaism

For any adults and young adults who want to enrich their established Jewish knowledge and understanding. This class is intended for those who have a firm foundation in the basic concepts of Judaism from a Progressive perspective (the completion of Discovering Judaism or the equivalent is recommended).
