This is a five-week class that meets Wednesdays, November 9, 16, 30, and December 7 and 14 at 7:30 pm. A Shabbat dinner will be held on Friday, November 18 at 8:00 pm.

Rabbi Scott lead an experiential introduction to Judaism course designed for those looking to reconnect with Judaism, as well as non-Jews looking to discover. This five-week course allows students to develop a deeper connection with the Jewish faith through a digestible, experiential 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 unfold in a kitchen and will culminate with a Shabbat dinner featuring challah students make by hand. 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 offer participants a chance to step into Jewish life and experience it on their own terms.
