- The mission of The Jewish Encounter is to bring people together to learn, grow and develop relationships with others who share a desire to connect with Judaism. We strive to meet people where they are with an accepting model of welcome and outreach for interfaith families and Jews and non-Jews alike. We offer a 20-week introduction to Judaism class for Jews and non-Jews, couples and singles, who are interested in exploring the role of Jewish identity in their lives as well as a 12 week class that offers a more in depth discuss of Jewish topics. We also offer mother's groups and trips to Israel as well. Visit our website to learn more.
