Rabbi Elton and Rabbi Feldman run regular series of education classes. These include Talmud, Jewish philosophy, Jewish history, the Prayerbook, Jewish law and synagogue skills. You can see his current and forthcoming classes on the synagogue calendar here.

Rabbi Elton is also available to teach individually and in small groups. In particular, he is available half an hour before weekday morning services and other times by arrangement. Be in touch to set up a time. 

On Shabbat morning from 8.30 to 8.45 Rabbi Elton gives a short class on the commentary by Rashi (R Shlomo ben Yitzchak, France 11th-12th century) on the portion of the week. On the Shabbat before Pesach (Shabbat Hagadol) and before Yom Kippur (Shabbat Shuva), Rabbi Elton delivers a Talmudic discourse after the service in place of a sermon.
