Temple Shalom is hosting the URJ's regional Introduction to Judaism course this fall.
Introduction to Judaism is for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of Jewish life through a Reform lens. Open to all, this course is designed for individuals and couples from Jewish and various faith traditions and cultural backgrounds and those who have had no religious upbringing. 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.
Together we will explore Jewish holidays and life-cycle ceremonies, Jewish beliefs and values, prayer and Jewish texts, the Holocaust, modern Israel, the American Jewish experience, and the tapestry of Jewish people today.
The virtual (potentially later in person) class is being taught by Rabbi JoHanna Potts and begins September 22, 2021.
Please have this clergy sponsorship form filled out and emailed ASAP following your registration. If you do not have a cantor or rabbi to sponsor you, please be in touch with Rabbi Potts at ten.molahselpmet@sttopj so she can connect you with a local clergy person.
