Adult Education and Torah Study

At Temple Emanu-El, we believe that Jewish learning is a life-long opportunity, obligation, and journey, and we provide many different paths and programs to pursue. From weekly Sabbath Torah Study (see below), occasional scholars-in-residence, the Rabbi’s courses on a wide variety of topics, and speakers from across many different areas of interest, we provide and encourage ongoing study as a spiritual and intellectual experience.

For both the learned and neophyte, all are welcome to explore the endless dimensions of Jewish culture, sacred texts, mysticism, current events, legend & lore, spirituality, theology, and history.  We also help our members locate and participate in other Jewish learning opportunities throughout the North Shore and Metro Boston areas. Check out our active Jewish Learning Neighborhood here.

Torah Study

“I don’t know enough for Torah Study. I can’t even read Hebrew. I don’t have time to prepare…”

That’s what a lot of us thought before we started participating in Temple Emanu-El’s Torah Study. But after a few sessions, we understood that you don’t need to know Hebrew or anything about the Torah to join – all you need is an open mind and a desire to understand Torah in light of our modern lives.

On the first and second Saturdays of each month, we gather to study the week’s Torah portion in an informal session on Zoom at 10:00am. We read (in English), discuss, debate, and learn together in a warm and welcoming environment.
