Students have the choice of three classes, which take place concurrently:

Judaism 101:
A thorough introduction to Judaism. Explore customs, rituals and holidays. Appropriate for introductory learners, those looking for a “refresher course,” and for those considering converting to Judaism.
Taught by Alli Debrow.

The Jewish Challenge of Modernity:
History books give the historian’s interpretation of the facts s/he selects. This class will examine source documents (in translation) and data so class members can draw their own conclusions about the life of Jews in the Modern World, beginning in the mid-17th century. Taught by Dr. Robert Lovinger.

Adult B’nai Mitzvah:
Learn trope (Torah/Haftarah cantillation) with Pam Coyle and the structure and content of Shabbat services with Rabbi Rosenbaum. You will help to lead it yourself at Synagogue Emanu-El! Participation pending, the Adult B’nai Mitzvah service will take place Saturday, May 17,2014
