Introduction to Judaism is an engaging 18-session course created in partnership between the Union for Reform Judaism, the Association of Reform Rabbis of St. Louis, and local Reform congregations. The class is for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of Jewish life through a Reform lens. Open to all, the course is perfect for interfaith couples, those raising Jewish children, spiritual seekers, individuals considering conversion, and Jews who want a meaningful adult Jewish learning experience.

Together we explore Jewish holidays and life cycle ceremonies, Jewish beliefs and values, Jewish family and home life, prayer and Jewish texts, Jewish history including the Holocaust, modern Israel, the American Jewish experience, interfaith family considerations, and the tapestry of the Jewish people today. The course includes a tour of the Holocaust Museum and a Friday night Sabbath program at United Hebrew Congregation in Chesterfield.

Our faculty are rabbis and cantors from St. Louis area Reform congregations. They are accessible, engaging, and caring teachers who are open to all questions and concerns. Join our class where everyone and their questions are welcomed, and open and honest discussion is encouraged.

All students are asked to connect with a rabbi or cantor to discuss this course and your interest in Judaism. If you have not already connected with a rabbi or cantor, please contact Steve Sorkin at (314) 727-3015 or [email protected], who will be happy to help you find a rabbi or cantor near you.  (There is no charge for this.)

Before class begins, students will receive detailed course materials by email, including a list of required course books.
