Study has always been at the heart of Jewish life. At TJ, our mission is to create an environment that encourages every learner and to open the doors to lifelong Jewish education. It is never too early or never too late to begin the journey!
Adult B’nai Mitzvah Classes:
It’s never too late to begin. For men and women 20-120 years old who wish to be called to the Torah as a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. It is a two-year journey of study (depending on your level). Call the temple office for more information or contact Cantor Alicia Stillman at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Judaism’s Great Debates: Timeless Controversies from Abraham to Herzl
With more than 30 participants, some of whom have been with us from the beginning, Lunch & Learn provides a lively forum for discussion, learning, and a sense of community that only mutual study can afford. Over the years, Lunch & Learn has become more than a study group — it has become a family the members who care about each other, not just as classmates but as friends, as well.
