Explore What Judaism Means To YOU!

exploring judaism with Rabbi Elizabeth Bolton

A course for inquisitive Jews, significant others, those pursuing adult B’nei Mitzvah or conversion, and Seekers of Knowledge of Jewish Life

Led by Rabbi Liz, and featuring plenty of interaction among students, this course leads participants through the major value concepts and practices of Judaism. We wrestle with fundamental questions while learning from and studying with each other.

If you are seeking to deepen your understanding of your Jewish heritage, or to explore Judaism as a spiritual and religious tradition you wish to embrace, you’ve found the right learning opportunity - as you are, whoever you are, or wherever you are.

If you missed signing up this year, don't worry! We'll be back in the fall with the start of the 2021-2022 semester. In the meantime, take some time to become familiar with these resources:

Sefaria - An amazing on-line compendium of every basic Judaic text, including Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) you can use in class, along with source sheets created by users on a wide array of study topics

Evolve by Reconstructing Judaism - From the same “department” at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College that created the Exploring Judaism curriculum back in the 1990s, a 21st century on-line academy of ideas and resources on contemporary issues, classic values, and their intersections

My Jewish Learning - This site provides helpful guides and short articles about a wide range of Jewish subjects, including “how-tos” about every holiday and life cycle event

Hebcal - All your Jewish calendar needs! Hebcal contains times for candle-lighting, dates for holidays, and an aliyah breakdown for Torah readings. 

Classes begin November 5, 2020 and meet on most 1st and 3rd Thursdays through June 17, 2021. Click here for full schedule
