Judaism 101... For Everyone; Tuesdays, Beginning October 6 and Ending March 16, 7:30 PM

Welcome to Beth Am and The Orchard’s Introduction to Judaism Class. This course, taught by the Beth Am clergy, is for anyone who wishes to learn (or re-learn) more about Judaism. All are welcome: non-Jews, Jews, interfaith couples or those considering conversion. Students will learn the basics of Judaism in a friendly and informal atmosphere. We’ll explore fundamental aspects of Jewish practices, such as holiday observance and lifecycle celebrations. We’ll also discuss Jewish understandings of God and religious beliefs, important Jewish texts, Jewish history, literature and the significance of Israel in Judaism today.

The class is also a wonderful way to become part of our community, meet new people and develop relationships with the Beth Am rabbis.  

Introduction to Judaism meets on Tuesday nights (on Zoom during the fall of 2020) from 7:30 - 9:00 PM. There will be a few field trips and other “experiences” to help supplement the class learning.   
   
For more information about Introduction to Judaism, the conversion process or Beth Am in general, please email Rabbi Jon Prosnit.
