Two students in an Introduction to Judaism class

Explore a modern take on Jewish life.

Engage with Jewish values, celebrations, and spirituality.

Voice your questions, discover multiple perspectives, and find what could be meaningful to you in liberal Judaism.

Introduction to Judaism is an engaging multi-session course for anyone interested in exploring Jewish life through a Reform lens.

Open to all, this course is perfect for interfaith couples, those raising Jewish children, spiritual seekers, individuals considering conversion, and Jews who want a meaningful adult Jewish learning experience.

Topics include holidays, life cycle celebrations, theology and core beliefs, Hebrew, prayer, the Bible and other sacred texts, history, anti-Semitism and the Holocaust, Zionism and Israel, the American Jewish experience, and the tapestry of the Jewish people today.

The course reflects the approach of Reform Judaism and is taught by Reform rabbis, cantors, and Jewish educators. Outstanding and experienced faculty encourage students to raise questions and engage deeply and personally with all topics. Many communities offer tuition discounts for those who would otherwise be unable to attend.
