ANNUAL SIYUM
Shavuot offers a time for the community to join together to complete a significant project of Torah learning. This project begins shortly after Passover. Sections of a Torah text are assigned to volunteers who study them individually or in small groups. Hebrew and English texts are made available, as well as commentaries. In the past three years, our community has completed Tanach, Mishna, and Sefer HaChinuch. 

PARENT-CHILD LEARNING
In the winter months, our synagogue hosts a learning program for children and their parents. Children and adults study specially prepared lessons and engage in discussion. Results of this study are discussed by the entire group. The evening concludes with pizza and prizes for the kids. 

PRE-MINCHA SHIURIM
Rabbi Diamond, Rabbi Bergman, or a guest speaker often gives a one-hour class on various topics an hour before Mincha on Shabbat.
