Referring to the Torah (all of Jewish learning) and meaning “Tree of Life,” Eitz Chaim is the name of our Life-Long Learning Program here at Temple Shalom. From the children in our schools to our adults, each member of Temple Shalom can create his or her own leaf on one of the many branches of learning we offer. Like a tree, our learning opportunities will grow along with the number of members choosing to participate in “Talmud Torah,” the study of Jewish tradition and practice.
We are committed to teaching Judaism as a thriving religion, at once relevant to our modern lives and enlightened by our ancient texts. As a blueprint for life, Reform Judaism comes alive in our classrooms and in our halls. Study the Torah in English, watch and discuss a film, or hear the views of a prominent Jewish mind. It is our hope that ongoing learning by our adult members will not only foster Jewish literacy, but also nurture a lifelong commitment to the Jewish community.
