Have you converted to Judaism in the past five years? Join an online gathering where you can make connections, process your experiences, and learn with others in this safe space offered through a Reform Jewish lens. Ask questions without fear, share triumphs and challenges in a nurturing environment, and continue to explore your journey with Judaism in a community of care.
We recognize that the experiences of those who convert to Judaism are by no means monolithic (and many choose other language to describe themselves, preferring Jew by Choice, or preferring not to label themselves at all). We welcome and affirm people from a wide range of backgrounds including Jews of Color, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and people from other marginalized communities.
Facilitated by Sue Bojdak (she/her) and Yanira Quiñones (she/her). Live captioning and/or ASL interpretation available with 2 weeks advance request, and we will make every effort to meet any request made at any time. Contact Learning@urj.org.
Jewish & New-ish will be offered virtually.
This program is made possible through the generous support of the National Center to Encourage Judaism (NCEJ)
