Jewish & New-ish

A Supportive Online Space for Those Who Have Recently (0-5 Years) Converted to Judaism

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 a safe space with 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 caring community!

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 to not label themselves at all. We 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.

Let us know if you need ASL interpretation or live captioning. We will make every effort to meet your learning needs.

Support for Jewish & New-ish is provided by the National Center to Encourage Judaism (NCEJ).
