Jewish ‘Lunch & Learn’ starting

Education on other cultures and religions can prove to be a history-learning, bridge building experience.

At least, that is the goal of Congregation Beth Shalom’s adult education “Lunch & Learn” program, also known as “Living Judaism,” which will be May 16 from noon to 1 p.m.

The program is designed to introduce all aspects of living the Jewish life to both Jews and non-Jews alike during a lunch break. New topics of focus will be presented each week covering aspects of the Jewish life, such as:

- Jewish beliefs

- Who is a Jew?

- Understanding Jewish literature

- Jewish holidays and celebrations

- Jewish worship

- The homeland of Israel

Rabbi Howard Siegel emphasized these classes are about learning.

“We are extending an opportunity to the community to learn more about a neighboring religion,” he said.

“The weekly topics will explore three main elements of Judaism: God, the Torah and the Jewish people,” Siegel said.

All participants are asked to bring a dairy lunch with no meat to start off the learning experience and are invited to attend all sessions or only those they wish. All classes are free and open to the public.

To register, email Rabbi Howard Siegel at Congregation Beth Shalom at or call 661-254-2411.

Congregation Beth Shalom is located at 21430 Centre Pointe Parkway.  /  661-287-5512
