"Taste of Judaism," sponsored by the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland and the Cleveland Board of Rabbis, is committed to providing outreach to the community. 


Classes offer a window from which participants can begin the journey of Jewish learning.  An exploration of spirituality, ethics, and community are the components of the dialogue.  During the three-class sessions, participants engage with a rabbi, as well as each other, in an open discussion of how Jewish tradition and learning impacts one's life and lifestyle. 


"Feast of Judaism" is a six-part continuation of "A Taste of Judaism," delving further into issues of Jewish living.  The course examines the Jewish concept of G-d, lifecycle events, holiness, holidays, and Israel.  The final session is truly a "feast" with Middle Eastern food samples, accompanied by Israeli music.  This program was created to serve as a link between the introductory course and further Jewish study.


To accommodate participants in the greater Cleveland area, classes are held on the East Side and West Side throughout the year.
