Reform Jewish Outreach Boston is proud to offer classes and workshops for interfaith couples and individuals exploring Judaism. Our classes are taught by dynamic teams of rabbis, cantors, and educators from the Greater Boston Jewish community.
We offer two options for learning about Judaism. A Taste of Judaism: Are You Curious? is a free six-hour mini course that explores Judaism’s big ideas and core practices. Introduction to Judaism is a 40-hour modern take on Jewish life. Engage with Jewish values, celebrations, spirituality, and community. Ask your questions, discover multiple perspectives, and find what could be meaningful to you in liberal Judaism. Perfect for interfaith couples, those with Jewish family heritage, spiritual seekers, those raising Jewish children, individuals considering conversion, and Jews who want a meaningful adult Jewish learning experience.
Yours, Mine & Ours for Interfaith Couples is designed to help interfaith partners strengthen communication with one another around issues of faith, family, culture, and identity. Groups of three to five couples meet with an expert facilitator for a total of eight hours. Our Planning a Jewish Wedding workshop for interfaith and Jewish couples looks at the symbols of the Jewish wedding ceremony, ways to honor family traditions, how to personalize your ceremony, and how to find the right officiant for you.
For those considering conversion, in the process of becoming Jewish or newly Jewish we offer Becoming Jewish. This workshop focuses on the process of conversion to Judaism and relating to one’s family and community with a new religious identity.
We even offer a Hebrew Boot Camp, a crash course for beginner Hebrew learners. You will learn to recognize the shapes and sounds of the Hebrew alphabet and become comfortable sounding out some of the key recurring words and phrases in the Hebrew blessings for Shabbat and holidays. This course assumes no prior Hebrew experience.
LGBTQ individuals/couples are very welcome at all programs.
A program of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), we are grateful for the generous support of Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP), Boston’s Jewish Federation. Be in touch at 617-928-0012 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also follow us on Facebook.
