The Rochester Kollel - Adult Education Programs

Since its beginning, the Rochester Kollel, hosted by Temple B'rith Kodesh, has welcomed thousands of adults to a wide variety of Jewish study classes. 

Most classes are 4 to 8 weeks in length, 1 to 1½ hours per session, and topics range from classical text study to Jewish ethics, God and spirituality, Hebrew, literacy, comparative religion and more. 

Participants have come from the membership of Temple B’rith Kodesh, other area synagogues, churches, the Islamic Center, and the general Rochester community.  Some Jewish participants have no synagogue affiliation and others join Temple B’rith Kodesh as a result of the classes.

Parashat

Parashat Ki Tisa

In this Torah portion, Moses stays with God on Mount Sinai for 40 days and 40 nights. There, he is given the 10 Commandments on stone tablets. Fearing Moses will never return, the Israelites turn to Aaron, who demands that everyone bring him their gold, so he can make a golden calf. When Moses comes down the mountain and sees the people dancing around this idol, he smashes the tablets on the ground. God punishes with a plague all the Israelites who were involved. Moses builds a tent to be his meeting place with God.
