Exploring the Jewish Experience: An Introduction to Judaism

Introduction to Judaism

Explore a modern take on Jewish life.

Explore Jewish values, celebrations, and spirituality.

Explore your questions, discover multiple perspectives, and find what could be meaningful to you in reform Judaism.

Exploring the Jewish Experience is an engaging multi-session course for anyone interested in exploring Jewish life through a Reform lens.

Open to all, this course is perfect for interfaith couples, those raising Jewish children, spiritual seekers, individuals considering conversion, and Jews who want a meaningful adult Jewish learning experience. Our programs welcome people from all backgrounds and are LGBTQ-friendly.

Topics include holidays, life cycle celebrations, theology and core beliefs, Hebrew, prayer, the Bible and other sacred texts, history, antisemitism and the Holocaust, Zionism and Israel, the North American Jewish experience, and the tapestry of the Jewish people today.

Our teachers this year, Rabbi Geoffrey Dennis and Rabbi Steve Fisch, encourage students to raise questions and engage deeply and personally with all topics. The only cost is the required books which the students will be expected to source themselves.

There are 10 sessions. Each session will be held the 2nd Wednesday night of each month at 7:00 PM beginning on September 14, 2022. The last day of class will be June 14, 2023.
