Introduction to Judaism Class
Start your journey with an introduction to Jewish history, tradition, and culture. This 18-session course is designed for those who want a deeper connection to Judaism, whether you are considering conversion, learning more about your partner’s background, or reconnecting to your community of origin.
Our next cohort will begin online in April 2021. Check this page for information on dates and registration.
I started Pathways knowing one thing with certainty: I wanted to be Jewish. Through the months, not only did I learn about the history and culture, but I also learned so much about myself.
"Pathways provides an inviting, inclusive space for anyone seeking to begin building their own foundation of Jewish knowledge and experience. "
"What made Pathways so special was that the rabbis went above and beyond merely taking my cohort through the textual materials and tailored the experience to each participant, whether the person was like me, contemplating conversion from a non-Jewish background or was simply curious and eager to learn. "
Julia and John
"Throughout the class, we gained valuable knowledge about how to raise a family with a strong Jewish identity when one parent is of a different faith."
