The Ruth F. and Samuel H. Cohen
Outreach Program of Temple Emanu-El
We offer many introductory classes that are ideal for those who want to learn more about Judaism, whether they are new to Judaism or simply wish to reconnect.
The process of becoming Jewish is very individual and personal. Our conversion to Judaism program is flexible and organic in nature, but it does have certain specific requirements to assist you in coming to understand Judaism and determine if it is a choice you wish to make.

Simply Shabbat is an exploration of the Friday evening Shabbat Service, with explanations of the service and introductions to Shabbat songs and prayers in a slower-paced, non-threatening celebration of the Sabbath. Rabbi Batsheva Appel and Cantorial Soloist Marjorie Hochberg lead this open approach to understanding the rituals, history and practice of a Reform Sabbath experience. Instead of a sermon, there is a question-and-answer session. Come find out what Shabbat is all about! All are welcome.
Simply Shabbat is provided by the Ruth F. and Samuel H. Cohen Outreach Program of Temple Emanu-El.
