Coming up this year are both an Intro to Judaism class and an Adult B’nai Mitzvah class. These are wonderful study opportunities for people to come and learn. Please sign up and/or spread the word about these great classes!
Introduction to Judaism classes are being offered by Congregation Etz Chaim!!
Have you ever desired to know more about Judaism? Do you know some things about Jewish holidays, Jewish prayers and Jewish Customs, but want to know even more? Then this class is for you! From September 9th to February 3rd, join Rabbi Bob and Rabbi Cosnowsky on Sundays from 12:30-2:30 PM for a hands-on course that introduces beginners to the basics of Jewish thought and practice. The class is a mix of study, discussion and practical experiences designed for all interested in exploring Jewish life. Topics include: Jewish holidays and life cycle events, theology and prayer, Israel, history and some beginning Hebrew.
This class is for those who were born Jewish, but who are looking to further their understanding of Judaism, Interfaith couples who are raising Jewish children and are looking for some support as well as for non-Jews considering conversion.
The cost for the class is $310 for an individual or a couple. (Couples only receive one set of books.) Childcare is available if you need it for $5 per child, per class. If you are interested in enrolling, please contact Rabbi Cosnowsky.
