Exploring Judaism

Exploring Judaism is Or Shalom’s annual program for those on the path to discovering Judaism and for those wishing to deepen basic understandings of Shabbat, holidays, the Jewish life cycle, modes of prayer, and more.

Our new season meets monthly and begins on Monday, November 4 at Or Shalom, 710 East 10th Avenue, from 7 to 9 p.m. Join the program at any time of the year; registration is ongoing. Please enter through the back door, located on Fraser St.

Our classes will always include a brief communal gathering over food, as is the Jewish way, and you will be asked to sign on to bring an offering of food, to set up and clean up our space, on a rotating basis. We find that washing up in the kitchen together provides time for natural conversations and connections to develop.

Our class is free for members in good standing and for non-members the fee is $720 for a couple and $360 for an individual.

An appointment with Rabbi Hannah is required for new students. Returning students do not need to make an appointment with Rabbi Hannah before registering again. For further information or to schedule an appointment email rabbihannah@orshalom.ca.

    Is your “Exploring Judaism” class open to non-Jews?

    • admin says:

      Yes, Exploring Judaism is open to non-Jews interested in learning more about Judaism, sometimes they are people considering conversion, or people who love someone Jewish and want to learn more about Jewish customs and culture.
