Start at the beginning or keep your skills fresh- we offer five levels of Hebrew classes with taught by native Israeli speakers in this 12-week session.
Introduction to Judaism
Wednesdays, January 18 - March 15, 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.
Love & Religion: An Interfaith Workshop for Jews and their Partners
January 10, 17, 24, 31, 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.
We will offer another series of Love & Religion in the Spring of 2017. Stay tuned for more information! Please be in touch by phone, (202) 777-3259, or email, if you have any questions.
