Educational programming at our Congregation offers opportunities for congregants of all ages to engage in a journey of learning and spiritual growth. Members in our community are challenged to think, question, and contribute creatively to our common quest.
Our congregation proudly offers classes, lectures, seminars, and workshops on a variety of topics. We aim to provide experiences for learners that nurture various interests at all levels. The goal of our educational programming is to produce devoted Jews who are committed to life-long learning—searching and questioning, studying Torah, participating in the Jewish community, striving to master Hebrew language, devoted to the observance of the Jewish calendar as well as the Jewish life cycle. We take seriously the accountability to education, that is itself Jewish in nature — authentic, dynamic, challenging, respectful, memorable, delicious, meaningful, personal, relevant, and fun.
Congregation Beth Israel treasures learning as an essential part of Jewish life. We offer a multi-faceted Jewish educational program, serving our entire congregational family as well as welcoming all interested Jewish Austinites.
