Newtojudaism

New to Judaism programming is designed for those who are curious about Judaism, returning to Judaism, converting to Judaism, raising Jewish children, or sharing Judaism with loved ones. Our mission is to extend warmth and hospitality to every one who chooses to enter our doors. Our programs, which include Introduction to Judaism and many “how-to” classes, provide an introduction to the celebration of Jewish life and offer support and guidance for those in interfaith relationships.

For more information contact Program Director Ilene Tatro, or call 858-535-111, ext. 2516.

For information about conversion to Judaism, email Rabbi Arlene Bernstein or call at 858 535-1111, ext. 2522.
