The Talmud, the masterpiece of the first rabbis, teaches us to love education. Let's look a two gems of their wisdom:
From the Talmud: A person cannot understand Torah unless he has stumbled in it.
At Temple Emanuel , Jewish adults have many opportunities to “stumble” in Torah. You can participate in our Jewish book club or a Jewish studio arts class or Big Al’s Yiddish Club or Gefilte Flicks. “Stumble” into Torah study one Shabbat morning or into Adult Academy on Tuesday evenings or with your child in one of our many family education possibilities. Give yourself the opportunity to explore Judaism this year. You might be surprised how meaningful a little “stumble” can be.
He who acquires knowledge, without imparting it to others, is like a myrtle in the desert where there is no one to enjoy it.
Jewish study is all about learning and growing together. Traditionally, Jews in the yeshiva study with a partner. Each member of the partnership learns from the other partner. Come study at Temple Emanuel, so we can learn with you and from you. Every member of the Temple Emanuel community has valuable lessons to learn and to teach.
Temple Emanuel offers many opportunities for adult learning. Come and join us.
