Adult Jewish Learning at CBE
We are called to foster three things on which the world depends:
Torah, Worship, and Acts of Loving Kindness;
Learning leads to them all.
Congregation Beth Elohim offers a wide array of courses, lectures and study groups conducted at all levels, taught by our rabbis, members and rabbinic students. Together we learn everything from theology to Midrash to Jewish popular culture, alongside modern Jewish literature and Torah.

Generally speaking, the worship experience in any synagogue is a reflection of the ideology expressed by the religious movement to which that synagogue belongs. This ideology can, and usually does, change over time and that change is played out in the worship experience. In this class we will examine how Reform ideology, as reflected in the platforms of the movement, have influenced the nature of prayer at CBE from the founding of our synagogue until the present day.
