A Congregation of Learners
Temple Menorah is dedicated to creating a congregation of learners committed to promoting universal Jewish literacy, with Torah at the center.
As you peruse our website at least one course or program will entice you to take the leap and become a Jewish learner. What could be more valuable to our lives than to discover that Jewish tradition speaks directly to the challenges of modern life? All we need is an open attitude and a guide to lead us through!
Our Continuing Jewish Education program has evolved into an exciting and far reaching Jewish learning experience. It offers much to the beginner as well as the more sophisticated learner, allowing mind, body and spirit to be nourished from the wellspring of Jewish tradition. Our tradition likens study to prayer. In the Midrash even the Holy One pours over a volume of Talmud! No wonder we Jews have revered study for four millennia.
