Intro to Judaism

This course is open to all — a Jewish adult who wishes to discover or deepen Jewish knowledge, an individual considering choosing Judaism, a non-Jewish person curious to learn more about Judaism, and a non-Jewish person with a Jewish partner who wishes to understand more about their partner's culture and religion. 

Participants register for each trimester separately and trimesters may be taken in any order. This course has a cost of $100/eight-week session. 

Please reach out to Rabbi Bressler with any questions. Registration for the fall 2024 trimester will be available later this summer.
