Living a Jewish Life

Living a Jewish Life is CBI’s Introduction to Judaism Course

The class meets Tuesdays, 7-9 PM, from just after the High Holy Days until late Spring.  See the links below for exact dates and topics.

This introductory course is intended to convey information about the major facets of Judaism: holidays, lifecycle occasions, Israel, etc. Students in this class typically come from a variety of backgrounds. Born-Jews take LJL as a refresher course. Some students choose to take this course as a part of their journey to conversion to Judaism. Interfaith couples find that LJL is a great way for a non-Jewish partner and a Jewish partner to learn together about Judaism. Some people who take LJL are simply curious to learn more about Judaism.

For those taking this class for the purpose of conversion, you will be expected to write several journal entries, a book report, meet with a mentor at least 4 times throughout the year, and complete two end of semester exams.

No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, Rabbis Steve Folberg and Kelly Levy look forward to teaching you along the way.
