Adult Educational Programs

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.


Judaic Learning

Adult Jewish Growth - Throughout the year, there will be several mini-courses of adult learning offered on Monday afternoons (12:30-2 pm) or Wednesday evenings (7:30-9 pm). View calendar for dates and details. 

Adult B’nai Mitzvah - Temple Shalom offers a program for those who have never had the opportunity to be called to the Torah and celebrate becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Membership at Temple Shalom is required. Contact Rabbi Malinger for additional information.

Kabbalat Torah - Anyone who is a B’nai Mitzvah can participate in our Adult Kabbalat Torah program. These classes are designed to encourage in-depth Torah study and will change to meet the needs of the students as well as the interests of the faculty members.

Shabbat SpeakersCheck the calendar for featured guests who will be welcomed to the bimah to share lessons of Torah and Jewish answers to today’s tough questions.

Torah Trek - Imagine a worship experience which strengthens the intimate connection between humanity and the earth.  Come and join us for an outdoor nature worship experience guided by members trained in the skill of Torah Trek. View calendar for additional details

Shabbat Morning Torah Study - This interactive discussion group examines weekly Torah portions and selected books of the Prophets and Writings. Join us each Shabbat morning from 9:15 am -10:15 am for lively conversation and stay for the Shabbat service afterward! No background required—just a willingness to learn and share ideas. Contact Rabbi Malinger, rabbi@templeshalomnj.org, for additional information.


Jewish Film Series

Choir

Our volunteer choir, led by Organist and Choir Director Pam Momyer, leads our Congregation in song at many Shabbat services during the year. Rehearsals are twice a month, on Monday evenings. If you love to sing, this is the place for you! Contact Pam Momyer for additional information.
