From our in-house musical performances to our monthly "Bagel and Bible" Torah study breakfasts, we offer many opportunities for our members to learn about and celebrate the breadth of Jewish culture. Other offerings include adult education classes in basic Judaism, prayer, and introductory Hebrew; Book Club meetings; programs and speakers; and field trips to places and events of Jewish interest. We also maintain a library from which members may borrow books, and other material. Each year brings new events, services, and community activities. We welcome new ideas.
For a number of years the Temple has had an active Book Club. Members gather to visit, talk about the book we've all read (or not) and, of course, eat. It is a wonderful chance to explore the Jewish "story" with friends. Admittedly, we don't always stick to talking about the book - depending on how compelling our choice of the month is - but, that is half the fun!
The criteria for selecting titles is for the book to be:
- Available in many area libraries
- Out in paperback
- Appeal to a range of interests
