An introduction to the basic traditions and structure of Judaism. This class will be taught jointly by Ron DeChene, Robert Hovden, Rabbi Rose and Rabbi Kurland.

Is this class for you?

Are you — Jewish and feel like you need a strong refresher course, or haven’t learned much since Hebrew school, or feel like your kids are ahead of you?

Are you — not Jewish but married to someone Jewish, or know someone Jewish, or considering conversion?

If you answered YES in any way to the above, or you are interested in a serious introduction to Judaism, then this class is for you.


Class meets on Tuesday evenings, October 29, 2019 through April 28, 2020 with a Celebration of Learning on May 12, 8:00pm.  The Living Judaism fee includes 7:00pm Hebrew class (10/29/19-5/20/2019)

Tuition is $500/member, $600/non-member. Take it with a partner for a discount: $700 for partners (members), $800 for partners (non-members). Note that only one partner needs to be a member.

Prior to the start of classes, join our Living Judaism teachers for free sessions to learn about the High Holidays on September 10, 17 and 24 at 7pm.
