L'Shana Tova 5781 - Happy New Year!
Upcoming Class – Begins November 1
Introduction to Judaism is an engaging multi-session course for anyone interested in exploring Jewish life through a Reform lens.
Engage with Jewish values, celebrations, and spirituality.
Voice your questions, discover multiple perspectives, and find what could be meaningful to you in liberal Judaism.
Temple Sinai’s Rabbi David Edleson will be offering this course beginning November 1. It is a 15-week, honest, open, and in depth intro to Judaism in its many forms, with a special focus on Reform and Progressive Judaism. We will consider Jewish custom, culture, religion, philosophy, texts, and world view of Judaism today.
Rabbi Edleson has taught comparative religion on the college level, and this course will combine traditional Jewish sources with modern scholarly insights. It is a great course for Jews wanting to learn more about their tradition (how many of us stop after our bar or bat mitzvah?), for interfaith couples, and for those interested in conversion.
We will start via ZOOM, and later consider whether we feel safe meeting in person, given the pandemic. The course is free (other than books) for Temple Sinai members, and costs $50-100 (sliding scale) for all others. Scholarships are available.
