This 18-week course is taught by members of The Oregon Board of Rabbis, representing a variety of Jewish affiliation. A carefully constructed curriculum includes Jewish history, life cycle events, holidays, ritual and daily practice, theology, study of Torah and contemporary Jewish America. While not a conversion class, most OBR members consider it a prerequisite for students beginning study for conversion.
Classes 7-9 pm, Thursdays, normally at rotating Portland area synagogues, but during COVID-19 restrictions this term will be held online via Zoom. This course is repeated twice each year, once in fall and once in spring.
