Introduction to the Jewish Experience: Lifecycles and Holidays (Online only)

This course was offered in Fall, 2018.

This is an online-only class. If you cannot attend in-person sessions at Congregation Beth El on Wednesday evenings, join us online on Sunday afternoons from 3:30 - 5 Pacific Time (6:30 - 8pm Eastern Time.) Students will need access to a computer and the Internet. No special software is required.

Communal and individual Jewish life dances to the rhythm of two different cycles: Jewish lifecycle events and the cycle of the Jewish year. This class covers a basic introduction to the Jewish lifecycle (weddings, birth, bar mitzvah, conversion, mourning, and funerals). Then we will look at the Jewish year, with its cycles of fall and spring holidays as well as holidays reflecting historical events.

This class is part of a three-unit series. See the full series here.

Please Note: You will receive the online login information 2-3 days before the start of the class.
