Expanding Our Minds... Broadening Our Understanding


The saying, "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" is totally wrong. We have the ability to continue learning all our lives. Yes, it may initially be more difficult with age, however with life's experiences come a stronger frame with which to incorporate new learning opportunities.

Temple Beth Ohr's Adult Education programming encourages the adult members of our community to do exactly that, continue learning about Judaism, themselves, and our place in the world.
