Three local Jewish Congregations are jointly sponsoring a 13 week Introduction to Judaism class. This class, which begins November 3rd, is being taught by the clergy of Congregation B’nai Shalom and Beth Tikvah Synagogue of Westborough, and Temple Emanuel-Sinai of Worcester. Classes during 2016 will be held at Congregation B’nai Shalom and 2017 classes will be held at Temple Emanuel-Sinai.

The Introduction to Judaism series of classes is designed for all who wish to learn more about Judaism, or get a refresher on the basics. It is for Jews and non-Jews and both members and non-members of the sponsoring congregations.  There is a $120 course fee for non-members, but no one will be turned away for financial reasons. Class hours are 7:30-9:30pm.

Many people are interested in learning more about Judaism for a variety of reasons. For those in interfaith relationships or marriages, the course can provide a helpful foundation for those who did not grow up Jewish. Jewish partners are also encouraged to attend, as the shared experience can provide an adult-level refresher and stimulate ongoing conversations about how to observe faith traditions as a family. An Introduction to Judaism is also suitable for those with general interest in understanding more about the historical foundations of Judaism and the way it is practiced today. The course can also provide a foundation for those interested in conversion to Judaism, when accompanied with additional learning and practice as determined with a sponsoring rabbi.
