Trimester Learning - Uniting our Congregation in Jewish Study
The Trimester Theme weaves through sermons, classes for adults, social action projects, and even fundraisers. Judaism is a living and growing religion. There is no better way to engage Judaism than through experience. There is no better way to model lifelong Jewish learning than by having every generation learn together.- Rabbi Joel Abraham
In 2011, Temple Sholom introduced the Trimester Learning Model. With the support of a grant from Legacy Heritage Foundation, we united our congregation around learning and celebrating Jewish life. Each trimester of the academic year is a different topic.
The topic is studied throughout our congregation by children, adults and families together.
