“These are the things for which a person enjoys the dividends in this world while the principal remains for the person to enjoy in the world to come. They are: honoring parents, loving deeds of kindness, and making peace between one person and another, but the study of the Torah is equal to them all.” (Talmud Shabbat 127a)


Lifelong Learning Mission Statement 

Guided by, and grounded in, our sacred Jewish texts and traditions, we are committed to learning that embraces, inspires, and matters to our congregation and community at every age and level. At Temple Sholom, we: 

• Instill Jewish values 
• Further the development of a strong and positive Jewish identity
• Cultivate an appreciation for Jewish history, culture and language 

resulting in deep resilience, empathy for others, and a meaningful spiritual context for our modern lives not only as Jews, but as humans. Through our engaging and inclusive approach, our education program aims to create and deepen the connection of members to their lifecycle events, the synagogue, each other, and to the broader Jewish community.
