Adult Education

At TBS, we believe that Learning is for Everyone (LIFE). Our LIFE Committee prepares a year of engaging learning for our congregational family.


LIFE programs are open to all adult members of the congregation with sessions led by Rabbi Widzer and Miles Roger, along with other lay leaders. No previous Jewish knowledge is required.

In addition, we offer Adult Hebrew classes for those interested in improving their skills with prayer and/or interested in an Adult B’nai Mitzvah. Please contact Miles Roger if you are interested in either program.
