Judaism Classes

Are You Curious?

A TASTE OF JUDAISM® has achieved remarkable success with unaffiliated Jews, those who are not Jewish but who are interested in learning about Judaism, interfaith couples and their families and those considering conversion. This free, 3-session class for beginners – Jewish or not – explores the topics of Jewish spirituality, ethics and community values. It is designed for those who would like to explore or re-explore the foundations of our tradition and are looking for an entry into Jewish life. More

Introduction to Judaism

Beginners learn the basics of Jewish thought and practice. The class runs 16-26 weeks (depending on location) and presents a mix of study, discussion and practical experiences designed for those exploring a Jewish life for themselves -- interfaith couples, non-Jews considering conversion, and Jews looking for adult-level basics.
