At Beth Emeth, we know that Jewish learning doesn't begin with religious school or end with the Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
Learning, education and life-long study are among our top priorities. In keeping with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ), we see Jewish education as a way to secure our life as a Jewish people. We also enjoy Jewish learning as a way to own our Jewish heritage—to make our prayers, history and culture more accessible to us within our modern American setting.
We feel that ritual observance becomes more meaningful with understanding, and as a congregation, we strive to help members, climb the ladder of Jewish knowledge and observance. The result of our passion for learning and growth is that we have a unique and truly amazing number of lay leaders, young and old, who read Torah, lead services, teach classes and participate fully in an active Jewish life.
No one should have to feel left out because they don't know Hebrew, the prayers, the melodies, or Jewish history. Beth Emeth has an extremely broad range of educational opportunities for adults as well as children. Classes are taught by Rabbi Mina, professional educators and others with special qualifications in the topic of the course. Feel free to browse our Website to check out the current learning opportunities. Questions about a program or class? Call the office at (703) 860-4515 ext 101 or email [email protected].
Many of our more interesting programs are suggested -- and sometimes organized -- by interested congregants. If you would like to suggest a new class or program for any age, please contact the office.
