This is a six-session course that meets Mondays, July 9, 16, 23, 30, and August 6, and for Shabbat dinner and services on Friday, August 10.

Rabbi Jesse leads an experiential introduction to Judaism course designed for those looking to reconnect with Judaism, as well as non-Jews looking to discover. This six-session course allows students to develop a deeper connection with the Jewish faith through a digestible, interactive introduction to Jewish traditions, customs, and rituals.

The setting for each class will reflect the topics discussed. “Accessing Jewish Spirituality” will take place in the sanctuary to replicate an actual service, while “Embracing the Jewish Obsession with Food” will culminate with a shared Shabbat dinner. Instead of studying prayers, students will connect with mystical Jewish spirituality the way it was meant to be experienced.

Basically Jewish goes beyond teaching and offers participants a chance to step into Jewish life and experience it on their own terms.

This class is made possible by a generous donation from Travis and Scott Segal.
