Schwartz/Reisman Adult Education Program
Holy Blossom Temple is as much a House of Study as a House of Worship.
The Schwartz/Reisman Adult Education Program prides itself on excellence in education. For many years we have continuously brought high quality programming and people to our home. Courses, lectures, and hands-on learning all are a part of the adult learning program at Holy Blossom Temple.
Our expanded seven pillars of learning. Torah and Text Study, Jewish Life & History, Centres for Contemporary Jewish Literature and Arts & Culture, Israel, Social Justice, Health & Wellness and Language are sure to have something for everyone. Our programs all fall into one of these areas of experience, which leads to a full, complete way of life. Judaism is a collective memory of a people who will not disappear from history and we are happy to have you become a part of our history of learning.
We have so much to offer you as a learner. Try out a program and we know you will stay for a while! We look forward to being with you.
YAD: 20s & 30s
Students, Young Professionals and Young Marrieds @ Holy Blossom Temple are communities of 19-38-year-olds who join together for Shabbat, learning, social action, and community engagement. On the cusp of downtown, we are a short walk from Eglinton West station.
Our current programming includes social justice programming, webinars for university students, networking opportunities, and Jewish learning through food, text, art and worship. We have many partnership events with Annex Shul, Beth Tzedec, Temple Sinai, Adath Israel, Ve’ahavta and Shoresh throughout the year.
We also are constantly forming chavurot – groups of 6-8 individuals or couples gather monthly to do Jewish together. These chavurot are a great way to add richness to your life – creating a group that grows and learns together.

You may wish to extend your stay in Israel to travel or visit with family and friends before or after the study seminar.
