Community-wide Course: “Judaism for Conversion Candidates” Begins in Fall
Thursday, August 15th – Orientation, 7:00-9:00 p.m. Jewish Community Campus
The year-long course will be taught on a rotating basis by rabbis from the Reform, Conservative and Orthodox movements and is intended to acquaint those considering conversion to Judaism with what it means to live Jewishly.  Each student is required to secure a congregational rabbinic sponsor and meet the conversion requirements developed by their rabbinic sponsor. Classes will be held on Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00 p.m. and the location will rotate among the synagogues. Students learn about Jewish holidays, home celebrations, life-cycle observances, rituals and Jewish prayer, Torah, Judaism’s view of God, and about our religion’s movements.  Each class will include a 30-minute Hebrew component. Funding for this program is generously provided by The Menorah Heritage Foundation.

Community Selichot Program and Service
Saturday, September 21, Congregation Beth Torah, 8:00 p.m.
The month of Elul, prior to the beginning of Rosh Hashanah and the High Holy Day season is a time for soul-searching and reflection as we prepare oneself for the Days of Awe. It is during this time that we observe Selichot which translates as “forgiveness” on the Saturday evening before Rosh Hashanah.The evening includes a dessert reception, Havdalah, a program TBA and a moving and beautiful Selichot service that begins at 10:10 p.m. Through readings, meditations and beautiful music focusing on the themes of our fall holiday season, we reflect on the past year and how we will affect teshuvah for ourselves in the year to come.  Be part of this transition as we change Torah covers and prepare our souls to welcome 5780.
