Registration for the Jan - August session of the Goodblatt Academy's
Introduction to Judaism class is now open
The Conservative Movement’s next Introduction to Judaism class will begin on January 7, 2015. During 30 weeks of study in the Morris Goodblatt Academy, students will learn about Judaism and Jewish living in a warm classroom setting. Sessions include beginning Hebrew and Judaic Instruction from area Conservative Rabbis and Educators.
After completing the program, Jews will find they are more knowledgeable about their Jewish heritage and non-Jews will have an understanding of the basic practices and beliefs of Judaism.
Those who wish to embrace Judaism may continue on to conversion, with personal mentorship from a sponsoring Conservative rabbi and facilitation assistance from the Academy coordinator.
Classes meet on Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm at Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El, 1001 Remington Road, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
