Introduction to Judaism


Classes are on Tuesdays begining October 16, 2018, and conclude on April 9, 2019.  No class on 11/20, 12/25, 1/1, and 2/19.

Join our local rabbis on Tuesdays, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, for a year-long overview of the Jewish life-cycle, holidays, rituals, beliefs, history, calendar, and instruction in Hebrew reading. You will gain exposure to important Jewish books including the Hebrew Bible and the Talmud. Each session includes thirty minutes of Hebrew instruction. Sessions will rotate among local synagogues and the APJCC based on the weekly instructors.

Instructors include Rabbi Berkenwald of Congregation Sinai, Rabbi Aron of Congregation Shir Hadash, Rabbi Alpert of Congregation Beth David, Rabbi Magat of Temple Emanu-El, and Rabbi Seid-Valencia of the APJCC.
