Living a Jewish Life

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

Class will be held on-line Tuesdays, from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.  Trish will be sending out the zoom link the week before class begins.

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, Interfaith couples, folks who are interested in converting to Judaism and some are simply curious and would like to learn more about Judaism.

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

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

Registration is now closed.  

 If you have any questions, please reach out to Trish Ivey.
