Beginning Judaism class at Pearl River shul

Beth Am Temple will offer an “Introduction to Judaism class” for Jews and non-Jews, beginning on Monday, March 5. The 15-week course will be held on Mondays from 7:45 to 9:15 p.m. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the class is free, although students are asked to buy a hardcover Bible.

The course, taught primarily by Rabbi Daniel Pernick of Beth Am Temple, will focus on Jewish holidays, life-cycle observances, beliefs, traditions, and related topics. The class presents a learning opportunity for a comprehensive overview of Judaism for people who are in interfaith relationships, planning to marry a Jew, or preparing to maintain a Jewish home. For people considering conversion, the four-month course also will fulfill a requirement for many rabbis.

Participants can buy a Bible at Beth Am for $36. Pre-registration for the course is required. To register or for more information, email rabbidan2018@gmail.com. Light refreshments will be provided during each session.

Beth Am Temple, a Reform synagogue, draws its congregation from throughout Rockland County and northern Bergen County. It is at 60 East Madison Ave, in Pearl River. For more information, go to www.bethamtemple.org.
