Class is designed to be a safe and welcoming place for exploration. Our course reflects the approach of Reform Judaism and is taught by Reform rabbis, cantors, and Jewish educators. Outstanding and experienced faculty encourage students to raise questions and engage deeply and personally with the material. Many communities offer tuition discounts for those who would otherwise be unable to attend.
Topics covered include celebrations, core beliefs, sacred texts, history, antisemitism, and the Holocaust, and the diversity of the Jewish people.

Ask questions and discover multiple perspectives. 
Open to all, this course is designed for interfaith couples, adults those raising Jewish children, spiritual seekers, individuals considering conversion, and Jews who want a meaningful adult Jewish learning experience.
