Introduction to Judaism

February 5 @ 6:30 pm - June 11 @ 8:30 pm

$285 - $310

During this 16-week course we will explore beliefs and customs basic to Judaism. Through assigned readings, group study, lectures, and class discussion we hope to answer many of the questions you have about Judaism and to raise new questions as well! We begin each class by studying the weekly Torah portion together, in a discussion led by students in the class. Students write a weekly reflection submitted to the course instructor on a question related to that week’s class topic. We welcome Shabbat together on one Friday evening during the course by having Shabbat dinner and attending services at the synagogue that is hosting our class.

Coordinator and teacher Rabbi Stephanie Bernstein has been teaching Introduction to Judaism for more than ten years, and it is her privilege to be part of the Jewish journeys of her students.  Rabbi Bernstein received her rabbinic ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in May, 2009. Prior to becoming a rabbi she was a psychotherapist for over twenty years. Rabbi Bernstein is a rabbi at Temple Rodef Shalom in Falls Church, Virginia.
