Family and Adult Education

Congregation B’nai Sholom - Beth David offers learning opportunities for all ages. In addition to our Jewish Learning Center for grades K – 7, we are participants in the Central Hebrew High School for the South Shore of Long Island, which serves teens (grades 8 – 12). Adults can participate in the Rabbi’s Study Group on Wednesday evenings and The Korngold Experience on Sunday mornings. We have an adult post-Bat Mitzvah study group led by Rabbi Diamond, as well.

Central Hebrew High School

The Central Hebrew High School (CHHS) is open to post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah students, grades 8 – 12, who live on Long Island’s South Shore. Each week, Rabbi Diamond of Congregation B’nai Sholom-Beth David and Rabbi Greenspan of Oceanside Jewish Center lead discussions on current events and how they impact the lives of Jewish teens. A USY event and dinner precede the evening’s discussion. Students go on occasional field trips, as well. For more information, contact Rabbi Diamond at 516-764-4100. Learn more.

Rabbi's Study Group

Join the "Wednesday Night Group" for lively discussion led by Rabbi Diamond of issues concerning Jews in 2018. It could be anything - gender roles in the synagogue, LGBT inclusion, kosher cheeseburgers, events in Israel, Jews around the world. Whatever the topic, you're guaranteed to have a great time - and maybe even learn a little something. Class meets Wednesday evening after the Maariv service (8 p.m.) in the Chapel except on Board meeting nights (usually second Wednesday of the month).

The Korngold Experience

Sunday mornings Rabbi Yossi Korngold from the Long Island Torah Experience joins us to teach a succession of classes for people with different levels of learning who want to explore Talmud, Jewish spirituality and more. Complimentary light breakfast is provided. Classes begin at 9 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Post-Bat Mitzvah Study Group

Led by Rabbi Diamond, the class, which comprises several Adult Bat Mitzvah alumnae, examines the Shabbat service and the significance of the individual prayers. Practice your Hebrew, learn about the translations and what all those words mean. It is a wonderful way to gain insight into the prayers and connect with the Shabbat service. The class meets 7 – 8 p.m. Wednesdays and is open to all.
