Free Judaism 101 Class Starting at Har HaShem

Congregation Har HaShem introduces a new class, “Judaism One Oh! One: The Basics of Making Your Home a Jewish Home Including Shabbat and Passover.”

Taking place on Sundays April 10th and 17th at 9:30 AM in the South Building at Har HaShem, this class is for those who want to learn customs and traditions in Jewish life or review the basics of keeping a Jewish home. Components will include an overview of the ritual objects, habits, and traditions that go into having a Jewish home; what it means to “get ready for Shabbat” and what Jews do to make Shabbat more meaningful and powerful; as well as how to prepare for and welcome Passover in a way that brings family together and enriches the experience.

Expect surprising ideas and teachings from the tradition and a lot of practical, use-it-starting-today ideas to help deepen the Jewish feeling in your home. This class will be useful for interfaith families and also for those who grew up Jewish but want to know more about keeping a Jewish home.

There is no cost, but registering by April 6th is mandatory. Register online here.

For information, contact school@harhashem.org or call (303) 499-7077. Congregation Har HaShem is located at 3950 Baseline Road in Boulder.
