The Greater Pittsburgh Jewish Clergy Association (GPJCA) proudly presents Introduction to Judaism.
Intro to Judaism (ITJ for short) is a 26-week course, split into 3 units, that explores the literature, history, traditions, and spiritual foundations of the Jewish religion. The course welcomes anyone interested in growing in their knowledge of the Jewish faith who would like a nuanced, egalitarian, and beginner-intermediate course on Judaism. Teachers are drawn from Pittsburgh-area rabbis and cantors. Classes take place on Sunday afternoons from 2 to 4 pm ET, and are offered in hybrid format - both online and in-person.
Unit 3 begins March 3, 2024. If you are interested in joining the class, you can register now. A student that misses the beginning of a unit can join at the start of the next unit, and can complete the full course by taking the units in order; i.e. a person who signs up in advance of unit 2 will take unit 2, then proceed to unit 3 and conclude the class by taking unit 1. We will take a brief break over the summer, at which time we will offer a learn-to-read-Hebrew class.
Cost is $360 per person/$400 per couple for all three units. Tuition fee covers 26 sessions and the text book On One Foot. For those that have financial need, aid is available.
