Adult Education

A past recipient of the GOLD Solomon Schechter Award for excellence in Adult Education programming, Temple Emunah's reputation as a center for adult education is known throughout the greater Boston area. Our Adult Education Committee has been in existence for more than 20 years, and has evolved from a program consisting of just one educational series to a program boasting a myriad of formal and informal courses leveraging our access to scholars of nearby educational institutions, our success working cooperatively with other synagogues, our learned Rabbis, and our phenomenally educated and motivated congregants. Making full use of all available resources, we are able to provide multiple entry points for our diverse community, from beginner to advanced in subjects ranging from davenning, Hebrew literacy, Biblical text study, and Philosophy. The caliber of the teachers for the formal programs is outstanding, most of whom have national if not international reputations in Jewish scholarship.

We look forward to learning with you! To learn more about the Adult Eduation Committee, click HERE and to see our Adult Ed Line up for the 2019-20 year, click HERE!


The Adult Ed Committee invites everyone to join them for another year of our Shalom Hartman Institute Video Lecture Series! Through video lectures, text study, and lively group discussions, we are pleased to bring the world-renowned faculty of the Shalom Hartman Institute into the Temple Emunah community. We meet monthly, November through June, and this year we have two tracks: Lunch and Learn with Rabbi Lerner and Dessert and Discussion with Rabbi Kling Perkins.
