Adult Education

Adult classes and discussion groups encourage the exploration of our Jewish heritage and spiritual growth through the study of Hebrew language, Chumash, Talmud, history and literature, topical issues of Jewish interest, prayer, holiday traditions and observance, and Jewish concepts based on Torah values.

There are numerous opportunities for adults to explore topics of secular and Judaic interest. New participants are welcome to join the study groups at any time. Call the Beth Sholom office at 301-663-3437 for meeting times and locations. All study groups are free of charge.

Ongoing Events

Talmud Study: Join Rabbi Hersh each Thursday at 9:30 a.m. and delve into the Talmud, a central text of Rabbinic Judaism. The Talmud contains the teachings and opinions of thousands of rabbis on a variety of subjects, including Halakha, Jewish ethics, philosophy, customs, history, lore and other topics. It is the basis for all codes of Jewish law. Knowledge of Hebrew is not required. View the flier.

Shoresh Lectures and Discussions: Join us each Wednesday for a lively discussion on the week's Torah portion and other topics of interest, led by Rabbi T.

Meet Rabbi "T"
Rabbi Tzvi Tuchman, assistant director of Shoresh, offers classes and monthly discussion groups on Judaic and secular topics. Recent class topics have focused on Talmudic insights into Passover and Purim, love and intimacy, leadership and terrorism. Rabbi T looks forward to lively discussions and debates, and welcomes all, regardless of background, to participate.
