The Jewish Discovery Institute (JDI) offers an intensive 25 week course designed for people considering conversion to Judaism. The course will open the world of Jewish tradition and understanding to those who have little or no background. By fostering close relationships with the Rabbis, instructors and other participants, the program provides an important forum for sharing, support, and friendship. Pathways combines excellent religious studies with significant Jewish experiences such as Shabbat dinners, holiday celebrations and field trips. We also include sessions with trained social workers and mentoring Rabbis to help guide and support students on what may well be a major life change.
This program runs in partnership with Temple Emanuel.
The fee is $650 per couple and $325 for a single (no Jewish partner) student.
Financial assistance is available.
All potential participants should contact Rabbi Michelle Robinson and Rabbi Braham David
All registration is done though Rabbi David at JDI.
