The Temple Israel Adult and Family Education committee's goal is to offer classes of interest to the whole Temple Israel community – for all ages, interests, and backgrounds. We hope you will find something listed here that will pique your curiosity. We welcome your ideas for new programs and events. Would you like to learn to chant from the Torah? Read Hebrew? Attend a Shabbat learner's service? Make your own tallit?

Check back frequently for new programs and speakers that will be added throughout the year. Join our mailing list by sending your name and email address to adultandfamilyed@tisharon.org.

If you have ideas for classes or programs, or would like to get involved, please contact the committee chair, Janet Aronson: adultandfamilyed@tisharon.org.

The Seven Prophetesses
led by Maureen Mintz

Tuesdays 7:30-9:00 PM (after minyan): October 29, November 5, 12, 19, 26, December 3, 10
FREE with RSVP- use the form to the right

The Talmud tells us there are seven female biblical prophets: Sarah, Miriam, Deborah, Hannah, Abigail, Huldah, and Esther. We will study each of them, one a week, by using text, midrash, art and poetry to explore the words and deeds of these remarkable women of the Tanakh. 

Each session will stand alone so if you must miss a class you will easily be able to attend the ones that follow. All texts will be presented in Hebrew with English translation. No knowledge of Hebrew is necessary.

Shabbat Torah Table Talks & Family Board Games

After kiddush, join a lively discussion as we explore the topics and issues that will be raised during that morning's sermon or parsha. Bring your food and join us in Founders Hall. Talks are led by Rabbi Fish or Rabbi Silverman. For those interested in play, join other families for rousing and fun board games!
Shabbat, after kiddush: Dates TBA

Coming, March 2020: Scholar in Residence Weekend with Rabbi Shai Held
