Exploring Judaism

Exploring Judaism is Or Shalom’s yearly 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 online monthly via Zoom and begins on Monday, October 5,  from 7 to 9 p.m.

With permission of the instructor, it may be possible to join the program at any time of the year; registration is ongoing.

This 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 Dresner is required before a new students enrolls. Many students remain in Exploring Judaism for more that one season and 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.
