The Birmingham Temple is committed to lifelong learning that encourages Jewish cultural literacy and an exploration of Humanistic values. We regard the Torah and other Jewish texts as human literature that reflects the interests and concerns of those who wrote or interpreted them. Classes are a privilege of membership! Guests are welcome to try them out...please contact the congregation office to make arrangements.




The Beliefs of the Jews

Rabbi Jeffrey Falick

Mondays, 7pm (resumes October 15, 2018)

Join us for another year of "comparative Judaism." This year we will continue our study of the works of Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, founder of the Reconstructionist philosophy in Judaism. We will learn about his version of a humanistic Judaism and how it differs from ours.

Throughout the year Rabbi Falick will offer several topics in Jewish studies. Watch the newsletters and website for updates on dates.


The (Secular Humanistic) Rebbe's Tisch

Rabbi Jeffrey Falick

Saturdays, 10am

Traditional Jews gather around their rabbi's table (their "rebbe's tisch") to learn words of wisdom from the Torah. Our Secular Humanistic rabbi, Jeff Falick, will begin each week with headlines from the Jewish world. Then we will turn to the Torah's weekly portion, employing the tools of critical-historical study along with an appreciation for traditional ways in which the Torah was studied throughout Jewish history. Also...come hungry for the bagels and coffee!
