Adult Education

tabletsThe Adult Education Committee is entrusted with supporting, cultivating and encouraging an active Jewish cultural and educational environment for Beth Hillel Temple. We recognize three principal groups as the focus of our activities: Beth Hillel's members; those acknowledging or seeking a Jewish identity (including conversion candidates); the greater community in which the Temple and its members operate. We envision these three groups in concentric circles, with Beth Hillel's members inhabiting the centermost circle. Our events and activities will be designed with awareness as to which one or more of these audiences are involved.The Adult Education Committee is entrusted with supporting, cultivating and encouraging an active Jewish cultural and educational environment for Beth Hillel Temple.
