Upcoming Events In Our Community


This summer Temple Beth Israel in Macon is pleased to offer Beginner's Hebrew Classes! This course is explicitly designed for those adults who have always wanted to read the Torah (Old Testament) in its original language or follow along in our prayer books. This opportunity is available to those of all religious traditions, ages, and academic backgrounds. Hebrew is a language shared by many cultures, and we are pleased to provide the chance to assist in decoding Jewish scripture and liturgy.

Come join us for Kiddush Club starting @ 5:30 PM on Friday evenings as we make a "L'chaim Tovim!" (לחים טובים) and do a bit of learning. Kiddush Club is an excellent opportunity to get into the Shabbat spirit with community members while having a few laughs along the way. No need to bring anything. All are welcome to participate. Simply check the listing of dates to find out which evenings this get-together will be hosted. Looking forward to seeing you there!
