In the Babylonian Talmud, the rabbis debate which is greater, study or action. They conclude that “study is greater, for it leads to action” (Kiddushin 40b). At the South Street Temple, we offer many opportunities for formal and informal Jewish learning for members of all ages.
Children from preschool through high school participate in the Lincoln Jewish Community School during the school year. Many of our children also attend Jewish camps to extend their Jewish education year round.
October Adult Education Series: A Taste of Judaism
Tuesdays, 7-9 pm, October 10, 17, and 24
A Taste of Judaism is a three-session course offering a broad introduction to modern Jewish spirituality, values, and community – the basics of Judaism. It’s for those interested in learning more about Judaism – non-Jews who are curious, non-Jews who are friends or spouses or family members of Jews, and Jews who simply want to learn more. (And there will be Jewish food, beverages, and snacks.)
Rabbi Alex will lead the 3 sessions:
- Oct. 10 God/Jewish Spirituality
- Oct. 17 Torah/Jewish Values
- Oct. 24 K’lal Yisrael/Jewish Community
To register, email SST Board Member Julie Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Include your name and contact information. If you have questions, phone or text Board Member Maria Cadwallader at 402-309-6775.
