VIA ZOOM: Introduction to Judaism

Tuesday, November 30, 2021 26 Kislev 5782

7:00 PM - 9:00 PMVia Zoom

This course will present an overview of major aspects of Judaism, including practice, belief, and history. Students will be exposed to Jewish thought and practice through lectures, class discussions, and readings. Because Judaism is not something that can be fully understood from books and lectures, there will be several assignments and activities designed to give participants "real-world" Jewish experiences.

This class is being taught by five Rabbis, from four different synagogues as well as from Jewish Silicon Valley.  This will give you exposure to a variety of approaches to Judaism. Please note that, if we return to in-person learning, the location of the class will change according to who is teaching on that particular night.  


This course is open to Jews and non-Jews, those seeking to convert to Judaism, as well as those who are interested in learning more. Conversion candidates should meet with their sponsoring Rabbi for additional requirements.

Instructors: Mike Maiten, Rabbi Hugh Seid-Valencia of the APJCC, Rabbi Jaymee Alpert of Congregation Beth David, Rabbi PJ Schwartz of Congregation Shir Hadash, Rabbi Josh Berkenwald of Congregation Sinai, and Rabbi Dana Magat of Temple Emanu-El.

The fee for the class is $180 and includes all books and materials. To register, please visit the this website.
