Temple Sinai continues to offer a number of different opportunities for adult learning.
We are delighted to announce that adult education will commence with a very special guest speaker. Rochelle Dreeben, Shoah survivor, and author of "one dark night," will make a presentation and be available to answer questions on Thursday evening October 3rd at 6:30 p.m. As a little girl, Rochelle escaped with her mother from the Warsaw Ghetto. Mrs. Dreeben's discussion in tribute to her mother's resourcefulness, as she found a way to narrowly escape the death camps, find safe haven for Rochelle in a convent, and bring Rochelle to America, will have you captivated. Please save the date. Should you choose to read this double memoir of Rochelle and her mother prior to October 3rd, the book is available through Barnes and Noble. (See notice on page 8).
Each Saturday morning after Rosh Hashanah from 9:15-10:15 a.m. (before services) our ongoing Torah study will reconvene with the book of Samuel. This is a free flowing discussion as we read from the Tanakh. No prior knowledge is required. All are welcome at occasional or regular sessions.
On Sundays we have courses taught by our rabbis at 9:00-10:00 a.m. and again at 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Our rabbis are planning two topics of study for the upcoming year:
1) The Anatomy of Mishkan T'Filah- sessions to help us better understand the structure and function of our prayer services. Do you ever wonder why we pray in the sequence we do? What does each prayer mean? How are the prayers interrelated? These and other questions will be addressed.
2) A Comparison between Judaism and Christianity.
Classes in Beginning Hebrew and Intermediate Hebrew will once again meet 10:00-11:00 a.m. Sunday mornings. Please contact Dennis Goldsmith (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the office (381-6890) to inform us of your interest.
Did you happen to attend or hear about the wonderful Adult B'nei Mitzvah ceremony this past May? The next Adult B'nei Mitzvah class, a two year course of study, is forming. In addition, Rabbi Sapowith will be offering the course,
"Making Prayer Real." See her article on page 2 for more information on these exciting opportunities.
