Congregation Beth Shalom is excited that we are one of a few communities invited to become a partner to Community Scholar Program (CSP). Until this past March CSP was an in person adult education program in Orange County. The program is now all on ZOOM, bringing several amazing Jewish scholars from around the world to teach every week. This is a way to learn with Jewish scholars all over the world right here in Seattle. Many of their programs are announced shortly in advance of the program, so we will post them in the events section on our Beth Shalom Facebook page.
We encourage you to subscribe directly to CSP for the most up to date program schedule.
Below is CSP’s self-description:
Celebrating our 20th year, the Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program shares the joy of Judaism, builds community, and celebrates our Jewish heritage with a rich adult education program and unique family experiences. Whether we are picking apples for Rosh Hashana, celebrating Shabbat while camping, clapping along with Jewish Blues or Rock musicians, hosting a community-wide Shabbat Alive outdoors, learning with internationally-known scholars, making life-long Jewish friends at family and adult retreats, or providing distance learning programs
during a pandemic, CSP has programs to offer for all ages. We ignite passion for Judaism! CSP livestreams programs on our CSP Facebook site, and shares recordings on our CSP YouTube Channel (please visit and subscribe!). If you are interested in our I-tunes archive of over 200 programs, you can listen here. You can reach us on the web at https://occsp.net/ and by phone at (949) 682-4040.
