Elements of Judaism is an introductory course to Jewish thought, belief, and practice. Get a high level view of what Jewish people believe and how these beliefs are expressed in daily life. Elements of Judaism is designed for anyone who wants to reinforce or establish a foundation in understanding Judaism. Do you want to brush up on your basic knowledge? Are you part of an interfaith family? Are you considering conversion to Judaism? Just curious? This is the course for you.
For those interested in exploring conversion to Judaism, Elements of Judaism is intended to be your first step. Register for Elements, attend class, get a greater sense of who we are as a people and as a specific Temple Beth El community. After Elements of Judaism, you will continue on to our second course, Choosing Judaism. Our clergy office will contact you to begin your specific conversion journey and steps after you complete Elements.
We will send a reminder and more information in the week before class begins. Tuition is $50/student. You will need to budget approximately $35 to purchase a book for the course. That said, finances should never be a barrier to learning. Please do reach out for limited assistance.
