                                   A Taste Of Judaism

A free three-session exploration and modern Jewish take on spirituality, values, and community. This is a beginning course, open to Jews and non-Jews who are interested in learning more about Judaism. ALL are welcome.
This course is designed for interfaith couples, those raising Jewish children, spiritual seekers, individuals considering conversion, and anyone curious about Judaism.
Rabbi Olshein has been teaching “A Taste of Judaism … Are You Curious?” for the questioning and unaffiliated for many years, always to rave reviews. Whether your friends are unaffiliated and feel they need to “brush up” on their Judaism, or they constantly ask you about your faith, or they are thinking about becoming Jewish, this is the “starter” class Rabbi Olshein recommends to “get your feet wet.”
