The term spirituality can be defined many different ways to different people. At Temple Beth Sholom “spiritual life” as we define it expands beyond worship; to us it also incorporates personal growth. If you are looking to strengthen your spiritual muscles, you may be interested in one of the following programs that are listed in alphabetical order below.

Council to Enhance Spirituality

In this first year of our Council to Enhance Spirituality, we began a journey of learning about spirituality and finding new ways to express that to our community.  Our goal is to create a series of “Jacob’s ladders” with the intention of creating opportunities for individuals wherever they are in their spiritual journeys.

Our initiatives included…

  • …our congregational niggun to begin meetings and gatherings to create a separation for the holy space and work we do at TBS and to bring us rhythmically together.
  • …a pilot “God Talk ” program at the Temple Beth Sholom Innovative School exploring inter-generational dialogue about God.
  • …a Wise Aging Program to be launched in September.
  • …Tuesday morning Torah study of the 613 Mitzvot.
  • …Saturday morning meditation.

Wise Aging Program

Wise Aging Page

Temple Beth Sholom will be offering a new program - WISE AGING - in the spring of 2019. The program was developed by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality and is based on the book "Wise Aging, Living With Joy, Resilience, and Spirit", by Rabbi Rachel Cowen and Dr. Linda Thal. The program will be facilitated by four professionals who have been trained by the author. The program is specifically for adults in their mid 60s and 70s. This stage of life is unprecedented. The extension of longevity is only part of the story. What is more stunning about this stage is that it is rich with opportunities for discovery, enthusiasm, and creativity.

The Wise Aging program provides resources and insights based on text study, contemplative listening, mindfulness, and movement to live our lives with resilience and wisdom. The group will be guided through reflective work that enables us to come to new understanding about our lives and values.

The vehicle for Wise Aging's exploration is a peer group of 10-12 meeting for four sessions: April 3 & 17, May 1 & 15, 2019. The fee for the program is $120 which includes text materials.
