Lifelong Learning

We encourage our congregants to explore their connection to Judaism and the world throughout their lives. Our adult education courses are thought provoking, discussion-oriented, free and open to all Beth Or members 18+ years of age unless otherwise noted. There are a variety of classes, speakers, special events and ongoing study opportunities offered throughout the year.

Refer to the website calendar, Beth Or Spotlight, weekly Chai Lights e-mail, or Shabbat Order of Service for upcoming programs.


Ongoing Programs

Torah Study 

Torah study is held every Saturday at 9:30am from September/October to June in Room 125/127. Torah elevates, educates and builds up our community. Join one of our rabbis for an in-depth study of the weekly Torah portion which will surely enrich your soul and give you workable spiritual tools for Jewish living. Refer to the website calendar for the current year's start/end dates.
