Adult Education—Ongoing Learning Opportunities
Talmud and Israeli Songs with Rabbi Skolnik
1) On Thursday mornings, immediately following Minyan, study Talmud in Rabbi Skolnik’s office. The class will finish by 9:00AM, and a light breakfast is provided. This is a wonderful opportunity to begin one day a week with Torah study; Don’t worry if your Hebrew/Aramaic is weak… the class is conducted in English, and all Hebrew/Aramaic text is translated. This class will be learning about the inner dimension of Jewish prayer.
2) On Monday evenings, join Rabbi Skolnik for an 8-week class in “The Classic Israeli Songbook.” Rabbi Skolnik will be sharing some of the songs that have come to define Israel’s earlier years, classics of the time of the founding of the State, and also some of the great songs of more recent Israeli performers like Arik Einstein, Chava Alberstein, Shlomo Artzi and others. We’ve done a lot of these songs at our annual Yom Ha’atzma’ut Zimriyah program through the years, but this is your chance to learn those songs and make them your own. Class will meet on November 6, 13, 20 and 27, and December 4, 11, and 18. Join Rabbi Skolnik as he shares his passion of Israeli music.
