Judaism 101... For Everyone; Tuesdays, Beginning September 20, 2022 and Ending March 21, 2023, 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 Beth Am clergy.

Introduction to Judaism meets on Tuesday nights (on Zoom) from 7:30-9:00 PM. There will be a few in-person gatherings to celebrate Jewish holidays together.  Our first class/information session will be held on Wednesday, September 20, 2022. To register, please complete the form below by Tuesday, December 20.

Class Fee:
Note: Registration includes one siddur (prayerbook) per household.

  • $180 (per person) for Beth Am members and full-time students
  • $270 for non-members

For more information about Introduction to Judaism, the conversion process or Beth Am in general, please email Rabbi Jon Prosnit.
