Begin, Deepen & Enrich Your Jewish Journey with T'chiyah!
Maybe you're on the conversion path and are seeking to dig deeply into what living a Jewish life is all about; maybe you're a Hebrew school drop-out seeking to dive into your ancestral traditions for resilience through these fraught times. Whether you're newly choosing Judaism for yourself (conversion) or seeking to establish your identity as a practicing Jewish adult (B'nai Mitzah), we want to support you on your Jewish Journey through this extended course offering for Jews by Choice and Jews seeking to formally establish their Jewish identity through a Bar/Bat/B'nai Mitzvah.
Set to launch in June 2020, Jewish Journeys is an extended course of study and practice of Jewish tradition, combining independent learning/work, chevruta (learning partnerships) and a seminar-style small group discussion cohort, to empower participants to engage in Jewish life in ways that are meaningful for them.
This class is being designed as a mixed-level cohort that can support the processes of conversion and adult Bar/Bat/B'nai Mitzvah. We envision this as a space that is tailored for beginners, and strives to be especially welcoming to people in interfaith partnerships/families, Jews by Choice / conversion candidates, and others for whom Jewish tradition may be inaccessible. Texts provided will be offered primarily in English translation, though learning some Hebrew vocabulary will certainly be part of the course.
