Intro to Judaism

Our Introduction to Judaism course is an engaging 18-session course held on in the Weinstein Family Library on the University Synagogue campus. To participate in the upcoming course, click here to register for the Fall 2019 Intro to Judaism with Cantor Shapiro.

All major facets of Jewish life are covered, including introductory Hebrew. Taught by our the dynamic clergy team, Introduction to Judaism provides an opportunity to learn about Jewish history, traditions, holidays and life cycle ceremonies. Participants will gain comfort and familiarity with the symbols, liturgy, music, traditions and Hebrew blessings that accompany Jewish celebrations in the home and synagogue.

Jewish adults have also found this course to be an excellent way to enhance their own Jewish eduction, and spiritual seekers who may not be Jewish have learned about Jewish faith, ethics, and community. The program is open to the entire congregation and community. The course is particularly appropriate for interfaith couples, whether or not the non-Jewish partner is seeking conversion. Conversion candidates who are married or engaged, or who have significant others, are required to attend the program together with their partners.

Created in partnership between the Union for Reform Judaism and local Reform congregations, Introduction to Judaism is a course for anyone interested in exploring Judaism..
