Adult Education

Throughout the year Rabbi Jack presents various adult education classes on an array of interesting topics for the Temple membership and wider Long Beach area. For example there was a three part series on Kabbalah, a three week course on Yiddish, a two part presentation on the psalms of King David and an upcoming lecture on Chagall: A Window into his Life.

At Temple-Emanu-El we believe learning is a lifetime endeavor.  We offer relevant and interesting classes throughout the year.

Weekly Torah Study

A Taste of Torah

One of the highlights of our adult education offerings is our Taste of Torah Study class, taught with insight, thoughtfulness and a dash of humor by our very own Rabbi Jack.  We gather every Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m.  Lively, interactive, and entertaining,  the journey deep into each week’s section of our holy text is truly a transformative experience.  You’ll argue, opine, laugh and analyze your way into feeling that your knowledge of our people’s oldest source material has blossomed.  There is no need to read Hebrew as the class is conducted in English.  Come and see for yourselves what the buzz is all about.  We’ll save a seat for you. For now, Rabbi Jack is conducting his weekly Taste of Torah classes via ZOOM.

Class begins at 10:30 am in person. and on Zoom.
