CBS Adult Education Opportunities in 5781

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. 




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. RSVP to the CBS Office.



The Palestinian Refugees of 1948 & Israel : Past, Present & Future
presented by Dr Eric Steckler 

Tuesday, December 8, 7:00pm - 8:30pm via Zoom

The relationship between the Palestinian refugees & Israel is long & complex. It involves the parallel Jewish & Arab societies in Mandate Palestine, the Arab countries, the various phases of the Israeli War of Independence as well as the UN, Cold War & the attitudes of American Presidents. This Zoom presentation will hopefully shed light on this aspect of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict which persists until today.
Facilitated by Dr. Eric Steckler.
