Adult Learning

“Find for yourself a teacher and acquire for yourself a friend.” (Pirke Avot, the Ethics of the Fathers)

At Congregation Shalom, we value ongoing learning for all ages. To that end, we offer a robust program of adult learning classes. We are always adding to our offerings, so check back frequently!

Our vibrant and active program of Adult Learning responds to the diverse and changing interests of our members.  One thing remains constant:  a high standard of education that translates into interesting and engaging conversation and a deep understanding of our culture and our people.

By creating multiple portals of entry to Jewish learning we have created a congregation of learners. Offerings for all ages and schedules include fun topics and text-based study, “How To” classes and other Jewish learning for Jewish living.

 

UPCOMING CLASSES:

LET’S GO A LITTLE DEEPER: INTRO TO JUDAISM, PART 2 
Wednesdays, 7-8:30 PM  Online
Fall Semester Dates TBD

This 12-week course picks up where the Introduction to Judaism class left off, delving deeper into Jewish thought and practice through the exploration of theology, prayer, life-cycle, Israel, and customs, and folklore. This class assumes a basic knowledge of Jewish customs and practices; Jews, interfaith couples, and those who are exploring Judaism and have already taken an Introduction to Judaism class will find all it interesting and meaningful. The class, taught by Rabbi Lisa Goldstein, will include a mix of interactive study, discussion, and practical experiences. 

  • The 12 sessions will all be online and interactive using Zoom. You don’t even have to be in San Antonio to take the class!
  • Open to all, no prerequisites, just your curiosity.
  • $180 registration fee (no charge for Congregation Shalom members).  
  • This course can count towards the classwork component for the conversion process with Congregation Shalom.

$180 non-members/No Charge for Congregation Shalom members
