Exploring Jewish?

Learning * Reflection * Adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah * Conversion *

If you’ve been thinking about giving your interest in Jewish experience more focused attention, Kehilla would like to encourage, and help support your effort. However you define what “Jewish” (or “Kehillian”) experience means to you, there are opportunities to explore and enrich that part of your life. You may have a desire to study toward a bar/bat mitzvah ceremony, or a conversion, or just to give yourself the gift of deeper personal exploration.

We invite you to a 6-month commitment starting at the High Holy Days. Those interested will choose among a variety of experiences: classes (Hebrew included), groups, partnered study (chevruta), solo study, personal reflection and exploration of mitzvot and the spiritual underpinnings of social action. Some participants will identify a concrete goal; others will just see what develops.

If this intrigues you, please respond (“I’m curious” is a sufficient response, more is welcome) to experience@kehillasynagogue.org . No commitment now—let’s talk!
