Experiential Learning

At Temple Sholom we believe that learning for all ages should be hands-on, interactive, and relevant to modern life. We believe that tradition, theology, and Jewish life should be experienced through relationship building, engaging programming, and innovative worship opportunities.

YOM KIPPUR SYN-A-PLEX OPTIONS
On Yom Kippur afternoon most of our community remain together for alternative spiritual experiences from 1pm-3pm. Each year we offer different ways to tap into Jewish spiritual modes that reach people who may or may not find spiritual meaning within the traditional Yom Kippur services and liturgy. We have discussion groups, study opportunities, a panel of Jewish storytelling, yoga, meditative walks, and more. See “calendar” for details.
