Are you part of an interfaith family? Always wondered about your religion? Thinking about converting to Judaism? Just curious?   

Welcome to Judaism is for those who are new to Judaism as well as for those looking to renew their connection and deepen their knowledge. The seven week class will provide a broad overview of Jewish History, Culture, Life Cycle events, Ethics, Law (Halacha), Spirituality, Shabbat and the Holidays.

The class will meet for seven sessions from 7:00pm – 8:30pm (gathering from 6:30 – 7 for snacks and social time) every Monday night beginning February 27 and continuing through April 10th. The class will meet at the JCA with some of the sessions to be held at different Portland synagogues and venues; on March 6th we’ll take part in a Purim Party and Megillah reading! The course fee of $18 includes snacks, babysitting (with advance registration) and all course materials. 


Made possible with the support of the National Center to Encourage Judaism
