The New Jersey Rabbinical Assembly will offer a 24-session Introduction to Judaism course in three times and places — Springfield on Thursdays at 7 p.m., Marlboro on Sundays at 10 a.m., and Hoboken on Wednesdays at 7 p.m.
Classes will begin in October and will include a combination of virtual and in-person sessions; the schedule will be determined based on the frequently changing covid risk, and it will be reassessed frequently.
The course will be of interest to a wide variety of people, whether they want to strengthen their Jewish knowledge base, explore a newfound interest in Judaism, or are considering or already planning to convert to Judaism; they could be at the class alone or with their Jewish partners. The course will be oriented toward all these students.
Topics will range from the foundations of Judaism to the importance of Jewish community, from Jewish history to Jewish holidays, and from the richness of the Jewish way of life to the centrality of crucial life cycle events. Learning basic Hebrew reading is an integral component of the course.
