Adult Educational Activities
We have a variety of classes, including Hebrew, Siddur and Talmud, which are designed specifically for adults and are led by the Rabbi and other members of the community. Well-known scholars from the Conservative movement visit on a regular basis. Conversion classes are also offered on an as-needed basis.
Jewish Educational Manna (JEM)
Or Shalom’s adult education program, known as JEM is a joint program with London’s Reform congregation Temple Israel and is a lively part of both synagogues’ programming. The goal of JEM is to provide stimulating, high-quality Jewish education to busy adults who have a wide variety of Jewish learning backgrounds.
Weekly sessions are taught by a wide variety of experts from the local community and by guest speakers from the Toronto area. The sessions address contemporary Jewish topics, ranging from the role of Jews in political life to Jewish views of sexuality or klezmer music. In addition, a number of special events are held throughout the year.
The weekly sessions are Monday evenings at 7:30 and take place at the London Jewish Community Centre, immediately to the north of Or Shalom.
