Building Blocks of Judaism — Fall 2019

This course is for those who wish to learn (or re-learn) Judaism. All are welcome: non-Jews, Jews, interfaith couples, those considering conversion, and anyone who is interested in learning more about Judaism. Students will learn the basics of Judaism in a friendly and informal atmosphere. We’ll explore fundamental aspects of Jewish practices such as holiday observance and life-cycle celebrations, including opportunities for some hands-on practice and 2 field trips. We’ll also cover Jewish understandings of God and religious beliefs, essential Jewish texts, Jewish history, literature, and the significance of Israel in Judaism today. This class will be taught by all Beth Am clergy — Rabbi Janet Marder, Rabbi Sarah Weissman, Rabbi Jonathan Prosnit, Rabbi Heath Watenmaker, and Cantor Jaime Shpall — on a rotating basis. Students are expected to begin with the Fall 2019 course, and are encouraged to register for additional courses in the Winter and Spring when they become available later this year.
