Lifelong Learning

Our Temple Israel clergy take great pride in bringing our adults stimulating and relevant Torah study.
You could ask for no better teachers than Rabbi Howard Siegel and Cantor Shira Lissek for thought-provoking Torah discussions, spiritual reflection, ancient history lessons, and more.

From September through May, be on the lookout for additional Lifelong Learning classes on specific topics, and often with special guests.

Classes are FREE to all Temple Israel Congregants. The only supplies needed: Questions and an Open Mind. To inquire about our conversion class, please contact the Clergy Office at 980-960-2379.

12:30-1:30 p.m. 
Join Rabbi Siegel each Shabbat following the Kiddush luncheon in the Mindy Ellen Levine Chapel for an hour of “eye-opening” discussion of the week’s Torah portion. Meet, discuss, and debate “up close and personal” with the most profound and controversial Torah scholars of the past two-thousand years.


Sundays, beginning November 3*
