Adult Education

Temple Ohev Sholom supports an active adult study program. Some of the programs available to adult members of the congregation include:\

▪ Rabbi Kessler’s Book Review

Lunch and Learn
On the 2nd Wednesday of every month, Rabbi Kessler teaches a noon-time class called LUNCH & LEARN. The class is taught in a very informal way – participants come to the Lehrman Chapel at 12 noon with their lunch (we supply the beverage) and an hour of study follows. No need to RSVP…just drop in!
This year we will learn about our Jewish holiday cycle through the book “Gates of the Seasons”. Hope to see you there!

Parallel Education Program
PEP is our Parallel Education Program. We meet once-a-month on Sunday mornings for bagels & coffee, and an hour of study and discussion. This year’s curriculum is entitled “Biblical Literacy.”
Each month, we will discuss the Books of the Prophets through a study of Rabbi Joseph Telushkin’s book, Biblical Literacy.

Classes are held on Sundays in the Lehman Chapel from 11:00 AM – Noonl. Hope to see you there!
