“Wisdom, understanding, and knowledge are the three pillars of the world.”
– Rabbi Shimon ben Gamliel
Learning is a way to connect with the Divine and that the pursuit of knowledge is a lifelong endeavor and learning is essential for personal growth and for cultivating a deep understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
At Temple Beth El, we recognize that learning is a sacred journey that connects us with the Divine. We believe that the pursuit of knowledge is not confined to a specific age or stage of life but is a lifelong endeavor. Through our diverse educational programs,
we provide opportunities for individuals of all ages to engage in deep and meaningful learning experiences. From Torah study groups and adult education classes to our vibrant religious school for children, we strive to create an environment where everyone can expand their understanding of Jewish tradition, ethics, and spirituality.
By fostering a love for learning and intellectual curiosity, we aim to empower individuals to develop a strong sense of self-awareness, compassion, and a profound connection to the world around them. At Temple Beth El, we view education as a transformative force that shapes our personal growth, strengthens our community, and helps us navigate the intricate paths of life with wisdom and understanding.

Temple Beth El’s conversion institute aims to be the Palm Beach County extension of the conversion institute from Beth Torah Benny Rok Campus in Aventura, FL.
Two sets of classes (18 sessions each) are scheduled each year, with one beginning in August and the other in January.
A class in Spanish is also available up request.
The classes explore the differences between Judaism and Christianity, the Jewish life cycle, the Jewish calendar, Jewish ritual, prayer, Jewish history, modern Israel, Jewish Ethics and the Holocaust. Students will also learn how to read Hebrew and many of the rituals of Jewish life. Classes meet on Wednesday nights.
The class is not a “conversion” class in the sense that the class itself does not convert the candidates. Conversion must be supervised by a sponsoring Rabbi, a member of the Rabbinical Assembly, who works directly with the conversion candidate to help him/her through the process. If you do not have a sponsoring Rabbi, we will help you obtain one.
The chairperson of the Institute in Dade is Rabbi Emeritus, Rabbi Ed Farber.
Conversions that are done through this Institute are accepted by all movements of Judaism outside of Orthodoxy and are recognized by the State of Israel.
