EXCITING NEWS! Our next “Judaism 101” class will begin in January!

I wanted to let each of you know I will be teaching a weekly “Judaism 101” course for Temple Beth Shalom, Hudson, this winter in-person and on Zoom. This class will meet on Sunday afternoons starting on Jan. 23. We held this class last spring and it was a huge success!

If you ever wanted to know more about Jewish history, Jewish philosophy, holidays, or practices, then this class is for you.

This new course is perfect for:

  • potential conversion candidates
  • folks who want to learn about Judaism from an adult perspective and may have paused their Jewish learning as teens
  • interfaith folks who want to broaden their Jewish knowledge base
  • young parents who want to get grounded in their Jewish knowledge

The class will be organized like a college survey course with a focus on: Jewish history, holidays, philosophy, and prayer. The course is free for TBS members and college students, and it’s $54.00 for non-members. There will be 4 inexpensive paperbacks to purchase as part of this course. Please let me know if you are interested in this class. RSVP – rabbimichaelross@gmail.com
