Congregation Dor Tamid: A Center of Lifelong Learning



The Preschool Place has generous scholarships available for Pre-K through the ALEF Fund.

“Surely this instruction which I enjoin upon you this day is not too baffling for you, nor is it beyond reach. It is not in the heavens, that you should say, ‘Who among us can go up to the heavens and get it for us and impart it to us that we may observe it?’ Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who among us can cross to the other side of the sea and get it for us and impart it to us, that we may observe it?’ No, the thing is very close to you, in your mouth and in your heart, to observe it.”  Deuteronomy 30:11-14

“As a rabbi and an educator these Torah verses so aptly reflect my philosophy of Jewish education. A deep and heartfelt connection to Judaism is not too lofty a goal; it is not only for the very learned. Our rich heritage can be relevant and accessible to all of us. As I continue serving Congregation Dor Tamid (“CDT”) in Johns Creek for a second year in my newly expanded role as Director of Lifelong Learning, I am thrilled for the opportunities to continue to actualize my vision through some innovative changes,” said Rabbi Lauren Cohn.

The Preschool Place at CDT, offers our youngest learners – two, three, and four-year olds – an experiential, exciting, and engaging environment with loving teachers, strong academics, music, and arts. We are extremely fortunate to offer our Pre-K students generous scholarships through the ALEF Fund. This year, we’re thrilled that our own clergy will be teaching Judaics and we are proud to introduce our “Adopt a Bubbie/Zaydie Program.”

Our Religious School students, PreK-12th grade, will enjoy a new school wide spiral curriculum from the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute for Southern Jewish Life.  We are pleased to offer a developmentally appropriate curriculum that caters to a variety of different learners with a focus on a multitude of content areas.

Our Adult Education offerings have expanded in frequency and content.  Between the classes and courses about historical events, cultural experiences, the Jewish calendar, and Jewish values, we know that all of our adult students will enjoy Jewish learning.

Congregation Dor Tamid is a Reform synagogue in Johns Creek, Georgia under the direction of Rabbi Michael Weinstein. CDT’s Director of Lifelong Learning, Rabbi Lauren Cohn holds a Master of Hebrew Letters and a Master of Jewish Education from the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion and has the title of Reform Jewish Educator from the Reform Jewish Educator Title Granting Commission. Mike Zuspan serves as the Cantorial Soloist.
