Introduction to Judaism

Just what is Judaism, anyway? A religion? A culture? A way of life? All of the above? Starting in mid- to late November, Cantor Kate Judd will be offering an eighteen week class at the Brattleboro Area Jewish Community in West Brattleboro, exploring some of Judaism’s many facets. Using the Union for Reform Judaism’s , but jumping off in the directions that are prompted by discussion, the class will consider how Judaism approaches life cycle events, God, worship and spirituality, holidays, personal responsibility, justice and mercy, partnership and family life, and more.

Jewish culture, Jewish history, and the place of Israel in Judaism will be considered. If you are contemplating conversion, this is a great place to start. If you are “Jew-curious” – either as a Jew or as a person of another faith background – this class will fill in some gaps and give you a place to discuss and reflect. Class will meet at BAJC on a weekday afternoon or evening, to be arranged on the basis of the needs of the students. There is no charge for the class, but students will be expected to purchase the URJ Sourcebook and possibly some other books. Please contact Cantor Judd for more information: kate@bajcvermont.org
or (802) 380-1677
