As life-long learners, we take to heart the obligation to engage in study. We define limud, or study, broadly. We learn together each Saturday morning through Sichat Torah, a Torah discussion. In addition, we offer a dynamic curriculum of courses, seminars and participatory experiences, based on a foundation of Jewish values and practices, which are meaningful and useful to adult learners whether or not their backgrounds have included ongoing Jewish education. As a community of learners, we learn through dialogue and understanding of topics, including Jewish Texts and Traditions, Ethics and Values, History, Culture and Israel as well as Adult Hebrew and Prayer. Our explorations range from Yoga to Talmud Study, from Cooking to American Jewish History.

Each year our Rak Limud: Adult Education committee coordinates a variety of classes, lectures, and discussions to deepen our understanding of Judaism. To make suggestions for classes or begin your journey of Jewish learning, contact Rabbi Kahan.

    Introduction of the 5783 Sichat Torah Theme: "The Art of Translation"

Wednesday, October 19th at 7pm - ZOOM ONLY

As we begin a new cycle of Torah, we will study with a new lens – translation. Every translation is a form of interpretation and we’ll explore our text with the typical JPS translation, as well as more contemporary and poetic versions from Robert Alter and others. Join us via Zoom for this introductory session to gain some insight on our theme and process before we begin anew with Parashat Bereishit.

Sichat Torah - Shabbat Morning Torah Study

Saturdays at 9:30am

Sichat Torah (Torah Discussion) takes place every Shabbat (Saturday) morning at 9:30am. Participants may join in person at Rockdale or meet us on Zoom. We study Parashat HaShavua (the weekly Torah portion), each year with a different lens. In 5783, we will examine translations as a form of interpretation of the Torah text! For those who wish to stay, Shabbat morning continues with services, including Torah reading, at 10:30am. *
