Continuing study of Judaism is an essential part of Jewish life. Our synagogue provides a number of opportunities for such learning. The adult discussion series continues throughout the year.
Additional monthly discussion groups are held in Sun Lakes/Banning, San Bernardino, Redlands, and Riverside led by Rabbi Kohn, focusing on current events.
Torah Study is held every other Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. and is an ongoing opportunity to explore the weekly Torah portion with traditional and contemporary commentaries. There are learning opportunities for every adult Jew.
Additionally, informal Jewish learning opportunities are found in regular Sisterhood programs, our association with the B'nai B'rith and Jewish War Veterans and their activities, and in Shabbat and Festival services and programs.
