Intro to Judaism: A New You at Pico Union Project
Starting October 29th, the Miller Intro to Judaism Program and Pico Union Project are teaming up to launch our first-ever Intro to Judaism class in Downtown LA. Some of the teachers for the downtown class include Rabbi Arielle Hanien of Temple Beth Israel, and the Miller program Director Rabbi Adam Greenwald and Rabbinic Intern Tova Leibovic Douglas.
The interactive course explores Jewish history, practice, texts, and culture. Classes are joined with Shabbat retreats, supportive discussion groups, individualized Hebrew reading instruction, and a vibrant “INTRO 2.0” alumni community.
Since 1986 the program has served around 13,000 students from all different backgrounds, all coming together for different reasons around a common interest to learn more about Judaism.
Jews from all walks of life attend the class. Whether you were born Jewish but never quite learned what it was about, you’re back after a long hiatus, or you’re just looking for a deeper understanding of your heritage, we could all use a bit of a refresher. The class is also for those who aren’t Jewish but are curious, those considering conversion, those not planning to convert but are sharing their life with a Jew, and more.
Bottom line- We would love to have you there!
Classes will be from 6:30pm-9:30pm most Thursdays beginning October 29, 2015 to March 17, 2016!
