"Wonders of Judaism" class (5779)

Join us for a survey class of the principles and practices that make up Judaism, taught by Rabbi Greg Wolfe

This class will provide a broad perspective on the rich teachings and traditions of the Jewish heritage.  The spiritual essence of Judaism, its history, texts and celebrations will be the focus of our studies, as well as those ideas and customs that make Judaism unique.  This class is required for those studying for conversion, but it is perfect for anyone, Jewish or not, who is interested in deepening his or her appreciation of Judaism.

Please take a look at the class syllabus if you are interested.
