CBS Adult Education Opportunities in 5783

Lifelong Learning

At CBS, we appreciate that the process of Jewish learning is never over, and the rewards of continued Jewish study are even greater when we are committed to learning for learning’s sake. It's never too late, nor too early to deepen our Jewish knowledge.

Rabbis Weizman and Upbin, along with a great many of our very own knowledgeable and committed CBS members, as well as guest educators, offer a vast array of engaging adult educational opportunities throughout the year. Through these skilled educators, we are committed to providing educational and cultural learning experiences for our congregants and the community at large. 


Adult Education Opportunities

   Talmud Torah Study led by Dr Priscilla Nathanson
    Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm  via Zoom.
    The study of Talmud is a major focus of Jewish learning. Talmud is a bit like stepping into the sea: you swim or bathe
wherever you are and at whatever pace that suits. Come on in, the water’s great!

    Here is the opportunity for an evening dip into the sea of Talmud. We will be learning Berachot, the first tractate of the 60-tractate Talmud,        mainly about the development of the Amidah and other well-known prayers (but dealing also with every other subject you can think of).
    No previous knowledge of Talmud or of Hebrew is necessary. WARNING: Talmud can 
become addictive. 

Jewish Spirituality Workshop Led by Rabbi Danielle Upbin
Thursdays 12:30pm - 2:00pm via Zoom
Check the CBS calendar or your Week at a Glance for schedule.
A class for women: An exploration of personal and spiritual growth through a variety of guided meditation practices
and discussion of contemplative Jewish texts.

Rosh Chodesh 2.0 - LADIES NIGHT!
Dates Vary - Click HERE to view upcoming Rosh Chodesh 2.0 program information
Rosh Chodesh – Hebrew for “head of the month” – is the monthly holiday that celebrates the arrival of the new moon, marking the start of a new month in the Jewish calendar. Because each lunar month is 29.5 days, the Jewish calendar “splits the difference”: some months are 29 days and others 30. When a month is 29 days, Rosh Chodesh is celebrated for one day – the first day of the new month. When a month is 30 days, Rosh Chodesh is celebrated for two days – the last day of the prior month and the first day of the new month. Jews are moon gazers. We look to the heavens to know if it’s a new month or even a new year. We start many of our favorite holidays when the moon is full and bursting with light – like the spring freedom festival of Passover and the fall harvest festival of Sukkot. And since the moon is a master of renewal, that inspires us: sometimes in our lives, we surge, and sometimes we shrink, but we know that each month, like the moon, we have a chance to find new strength and energy.
