Lifelong Learning with Rav Aubrey Glazer
Rav Glazer is currently teaching an online course, Doing Your Own Theology: Searching for God Through Sacred Fragments. Registration is required – click here for more info and to register.

Cantor Raizen periodically leads trope training classes for both Torah and Haftarah. Many of those who complete trope training join our Beth Abraham “Yad Squad” as lay Torah and Haftarah readers who participate in our weekly Shabbat services. Please contact Cantor Raizen if interested.
Introduction to Judaism
Organized and taught by the rabbis of The Synagogue Forum of Greater Dayton, this yearly course offers a full introduction to Judaism from Conservative, Orthodox/Traditional and Reform perspectives. The class covers topics such as beliefs about God, Torah, Israel, Jewish life cycle events, holiday celebrations, and Jewish history. The class is open to all, including those curious about Judaism, and to those who may just want a refresher to Judaism. Classes typically meet on Mondays from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm beginning in January. Registration is through the Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton.
The GOAL! Program
Led by our Cantor and Education Director, Andrea Raizen, our revised religious school educational program for children and families, GOAL!, is based on a phrase from the Passover Haggadah that introduces the Maggid section: צֵא וּלְמַד (Tzei Ulmad) – Go Out And Learn.
Many months during the year will have a Sunday congregational program scheduled. These are open to families and other members of the congregation. There will be activities/learning for all ages. Depending on the particular program, there might be some adult only and child only sessions, mixed group activities, hands on components, or text-based learning.
