A Taste of Judaism

Are You Curious?  As organized world religions go, Abq Jew has always thought that Judaism is Number One, for a trinity of good reasons.

First of all - it's not that organized. Second - it's mostly (although not entirely) logical. And third -  it doesn't focus on belief and the afterlife; Judaism is more concerned with doing good deeds in this life.

And the food is great, especially if you pass over the (relatively few) fast days and go for the (much more numerous) feast days.

If you or someone you know is not currently Jewish, Abq Jew strongly encourages you to learn more about what living a Jewish life means. How can you do that? Well ....
In October, Congregation Albert will bring an innovative new series of "classes" to Albuquerque - A Taste of Judaism ... Are You Curious?TM - designed for people who have limited or no Jewish background but are interested in learning about Judaism.

A Taste of Judaism ... Are You Curious?
Tuesday October 2 - 9 - 16 @ 5:30 - 7:00 pm
Flying Star Downtown (723 Silver SW)
This class is FREE and open to all! 
Class is limited to 30 students who are not members of a synagogue.

Who would take this class? Many participants are unaffiliated Jews who don’t feel that they know much about their religion, the adult children of interfaith couples, non-Jews who are interested in learning more about Judaism, and partners in interfaith relationships.

All sorts of people take this class, including people who want to know more about their Jewish colleagues’ religion, and grandparents of children being raised Jewish who are not Jewish themselves. The list goes on and on.

A Taste of Judaism ... Are You Curious?TM was developed by the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) and will be led (in Albuquerque) by Rabbi Harry Rosenfeld. 

But the information presented in the classes is not specific to any single branch of Judaism.
Everyone is welcome. You don’t have to be Jewish to be curious. But you do have to register so we can save you a seat! 
Enjoy three weekly classes on the modern Jewish take on spirituality, values, and community. 
Our classes are dynamic and interactive; our teachers are accessible, fun, and can answer any and all of your questions.
You can learn more from the A Taste of Judaism FAQ.
