“The Jewish tradition of learning – is learning.
Adam chose knowledge instead of immortality.”
– Elie Wiesel
Lifelong learning has always been at the core of Jewish life. At Congregation Beth El Fairfield we believe in feeding the intellect and curiosity as much as nourishing the spirit and the soul — no matter what age you are. Together, we explore the Jewish experience in all its facets: culture, heritage, arts, history, language, story, food, tradition, ritual, and celebration.
We focus on learning through:
- Classroom study of texts, traditions, and values
- Discussion and debate of current events
- Prayer and meditation
- Religious observance and traditions
- And through acts of loving kindness.
Come join us and make this your year of Jewish learning!
