Introduction to Judaism
Each year, the Synagogue Forum of Dayton offers a series of classes designed to teach the basics of Judaism: beliefs about God, Torah, Israel and Jewish peoplehood; Jewish life cycle and holiday celebrations; and Jewish history. Taught by the rabbis of Dayton’s different congregations, the series also provides an introduction to the different denominations of Judaism and an experience of the different congregations’ buildings. Introduction to Judaism is designed for those completely new to Judaism, those casually interested or exploring conversion, and Jews desiring to review the basics or add to their knowledge.
The Synagogue Forum, formed in 1986, consists of the rabbis of Dayton’s congregations. Through the Forum, Dayton’s rabbis advocate for and help provide Jewish education, a Jewish voice on community affairs, and community celebrations of Jewish holidays.
Registration is managed by Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton.
