For the first time, our Essentials of Judaism course is being opened up to the whole community.

Until now, this course has only offered to those on the conversion path before their admission via the Beth Din.

Many of us were secretly envious, as we all have gaps in our knowledge; some of us may have had an inadequate Jewish education when we were younger, and now want to make up for lost time.

The course covers the fundamentals such as:
• Jewish history
• Jewish calendar
• festival observance
• the Shabbat services
• prayer
• ritual and practice
• life cycle
and more.

Reading is provided in an emailed booklet. There is no charge for members. The course is led by Rabbi Robyn with some assistance from Sherry Ashworth.

While Rabbi Robyn is on sabbatical, Sherry is happy to answer questions, and Mandy will take the names of those who are interested and provide necessary details.

The course starts on Thursday January 7 at 19h30 – online, of course.

Make this one of your secular New Year resolutions!
