Introduction to the Jewish Experience

This series was offered in Fall, 2014.

Introduction to the Jewish Experience is a three-part series to introduce students to Jewish culture and practice. Students come from a wide variety of backgrounds: born Jews who did not receive a Jewish education, Jews who wish to resume their education as adults, persons interested in conversion to Judaism, and others who have family or friends who are Jewish and who wish to learn more about Judaism. The three parts of the series may be taken in any order.

Register here for the full series, or see below to register for individual parts.

This course will be available to registered students via Adobe Connect distance learning software at no extra charge, both live and via full video recording. Students may attend live in the classroom, live online, or anytime via recording.
