Adult Jewish Growth
COMPELLING CLASSES, THOUGHTFUL SPEAKERS AND MORE -- EXPLORE THE BEST OF REFORM JUDAISM SCHOLARSHIP
From classes in the liturgy to those focused on applying Jewish values, adult learning opportunities at Temple Shalom create an inclusive list of opportunities that bring this segment of the congregation together. You can follow your interests, even if it’s just to participate in one activity, and experience community in a wholly unique way.
INTRODUCTION TO JUDAISM
Introduction to Judaism is a 16-week course open to anyone who is interested in learning more about Judaism. The course targets those who want to expand their current Jewish knowledge, build upon past experiences they’ve had as a Jew, or are entirely new to Judaism and considering conversion.
Completion of Introduction to Judaism is required as the first step for those considering conversion. Spouses or partners of those taking Introduction to Judaism who are interested in conversion are encouraged to take the class with their partners to gain a basic understanding of what it means to have a Jewish home or live as a Jewish family.
For more information on the Introduction to Judaism, please contact Rabbi Malinger.
