Adult Education - Guest Speakers


11th Annual Distinguished Speaker Series continues the tradition of quality Jewish learning

Temple Beth Rishon proudly announces the 11th season of our Food For Thought: Distinguished Speaker Series. The Series presents a thought-provoking, educational, and social Jewish learning opportunity for our members and is open to the greater Jewish community. Featured guest speakers are Rabbis, professors and scholars in the fields of Jewish Studies who present their knowledgeable perspectives to the audience. 

The program begins with a lovely buffet breakfast giving guests an opportunity to schmooze with friends or meet attendees new to our temple. This is followed by a scholarly presentation and a lively Question & Answer session.  We offer three sessions on Sunday mornings, one each in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. 

Our program is supported by the Fred Emert Memorial Adult Education Fund, loyal patrons, and our consistently large number of attendees. We welcome you to join us. For more information, please contact Sharon Glassman.  

Patron Sponsorship is welcome!  Please contact Sharon Rubin for details.
