Rochester Kollel

The Rochester Kollel offers both one time and longer-term learning opportunities for adults, because Jewish learning never stops.

Religious School

Temple B'rith Kodesh's Religious School (preschool through High School) is one of the country's twenty Nationally Accredited Religious Schools, and the only one so recognized in Western New York.

We aim to help our students become Jews who cherish their Judaic heritage, who know and understand our history, who participate in Jewish worship and who feel kinship with, and responsibility for the welfare of, Jews around the world.

Aaron Braveman, a native Rochesterian and the former educational director of Temple B'rith Kodesh, moved to Palestine with his mother and brothers in 1927, when he was eight years old. The family returned to Rochester in 1936, when Aaron was 17 years old.

In conversation with Peter Eisenstadt, the author of Affirming the Covenant, Aaron will offer his memories of an American growing up in Palestine including:

  • His experiences living in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv
  • His involvement with Zionism
  • His memories of the land and its people
  • Eight decades of observing the changes to the Zionist enterprise and Israel.
