Sixth & I

Jewish Welcome Workshop

Sep 10, 2024 • 6:30 pm ET

This 38-week course is designed for those interested in learning more about Judaism and/or converting. Participants learn both within the classroom and through immersion in the larger Sixth & I and DC community. At the end of the program, non-Jewish participants will be prepared to convert to Judaism or to live as a Ger Toshav (“fellow traveler”) with the Jewish people. 

The annual course starts September 10 and runs through May 27, typically on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. This class includes a mix of lectures, group activities, text studies, and holiday celebrations. No Hebrew language knowledge is required. Those wishing to convert will meet with one of the rabbis individually during the year. The rabbi—in consultation with you—determines when you are ready for the actual conversion. 

If you are interested in meeting with a rabbi before that time to discuss the process of conversion, please contact Eve to set up a meeting. 

An Introduction to Judaism class is a prerequisite for the Jewish Welcome Workshop. One option is our 5-week Basically Jewish course. Though the course does not have to be completed at Sixth & I, please note that academic courses at a university do not meet the prerequisite requirement. 

*Filling out this form will add you to our rolling admissions list for the Jewish Welcome Workshop and does not guarantee a spot in the next cohort.
