Basic Judaism: An Intro to Jewish Life, Text, and Ideas, with Rabbi Matt Green 

Tuesdays, 7:30-9 PM in the CBE Chapel
October 26, 2021 through April 26, 2022
$425 per Participant/$325 for CBE Members

This is an overview course in broad strokes about Jewish life, culture, belief, non-belief, and thought. Designed in a 24 week module, this course will attempt to give the participants a solid background to the ideas, practices, and expressions of Jewish life from ancient times to the present, and serves as a prerequisite for conversion at CBE and in many other communities. The course is primarily taught by Rabbi Matt Green, with some guest teaching by other CBE clergy.

This course will focus on weekly readings, discussions, and practical experiences for each of the course participants—from basic concepts, historical events, how-to demonstrations with rituals, to an overview of the key texts and traditions of Jewish life.

We will hold class weekly on Tuesdays, 7:30-9 PM in the CBE Chapel (274 Garfield Place) beginning Tuesday, October 26, 2021. You must show proof of vaccination along with a valid ID to security at the door in order to enter the building, and masks are required at all times while indoors.
