Register for "Judaism by Choice" with Rabbi Neal Weinberg 
New Session Begins April 24 
Although this class is not a Mishkon-sponsored class, Rabbi Weinberg has graciously opened it to our community. Registration is still required.

If you are Jewish and received some or very little knowledge of Judaism growing up or you had a Bar/Bat Mitzvah and stopped your learning at that time and you want to learn more about your Jewish heritage as an adult, then this Judaism by Choice class is for you. This class is also for non-Jews who want to explore Judaism and for those who want to convert to Judaism.

This class will give you an overview of Judaism (history, literature, prayers, Shabbat and holidays, etc.) within three months. The class will be held at the synagogue on Monday and Wednesday nights from 6:30 p.m to 10 p.m. If you miss classes, you can easily make them up on other dates. All classes are taught by Rabbi Neal Weinberg, who has taught this program for 29 years. For more information, call him at (888) 539-2924.
