Introduction to Judaism classes ready to begin at Ohef Sholom

by | Sep 5, 2014 | What’s Happening

First class: Sunday, Sept. 14, 10–11 am

Each year Ohef Sholom Temple offers a series of classes called Introduction to Judaism. These sessions are designed for those interested in becoming Jewish, those curious about Judaism without plans for conversion, interfaith couples and all Jews, OST members or not, eager to learn more about basic Judaism.

This year, Rabbi Arthur Steinberg will teach the entire 11-session series. The fundamentals of Jewish thought and practice will be the classes’ focus.

Classes will be held approximately every third Sunday at Ohef Sholom Temple. The first class will cover the High Holidays. Other topics include the Hebrew calendar, Shabbat, Jewish History, Life Cycle events and prayers.

These classes are free and open to the community; however, students may purchase an accompanying textbook for $20.
