Special Event
Four Rabbis Walk Into a Bar: Tradition!
Tuesday, August 9
Happy Hour 6:00 pm || Event 7:00 pm

18th Street Lounge (1212 18th St NW)
Tradition. It seems like it's a really really really important thing to Jews. But what is the role of tradition in our lives today? How much of an influence do traditional interpretations of Jewish texts, performance of rituals, and observance of law have on us- or should have on us? Join our panel of knowledgeable local rabbis for a drink and to tackle the this many-layered question.
This event is open to all
Co-sponsored by Gather the Jews, InterfaithFamily/DC, Temple Sinai

Multi-Session Classes
Hebrew Classes

Love & Religion: An Interfaith Workshop for Jews and their Partners
Tuesdays, September 13, 20, 27, and Thursday, October 6, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Facilitator: Dr. Marion Usher
Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. For 20 years, our four-session workshop has been a model to guide couples in openly discussing issues they face as partners from two different backgrounds. We offer you a safe environment to work on creating your religious lives together, as you make Jewish choices while still respecting your partner’s religion.

Introduction to Judaism
Wednesdays, October 19 - December 14,
7:30 pm - 9:15 pm
Teacher: Miriam Szubin
Explore the rich traditions and culture of Judaism. This class looks at the building blocks of the Jewish people: beliefs, history, ethics, holidays, rituals, and more. It is ideal for those who have never studied Judaism before or those who might need a Hebrew school refresher.
