Current offerings by day of the week include:

MONDAY:

Judaism for Beginners

Join Rabbi Amy and Rabbi Michael for a casual introduction to Judaism class where we'll discuss lifecycle, theology, holidays and everything in between! This class is perfect for Jews, those considering conversion, and those in interfaith families. No question is too basic or too tough. 
All are welcome; just c'mon by.

 

TUESDAY:

The Way Into Torah

This class, led by Rabbi Alper, is for anyone interested in learning the Torah for the first time. Taught at an introductory level, students will encounter some of the most famous laws and legends of Jewish history and culture.
