Past Event: Introduction to Judaism Class


Pre-Registration is Required!

This Introduction to Judaism class will be taught by Rabbi Mills by Zoom, only.  An in-person option will be considered in the future if the situation with covid improves. The class will meet on Wednesdays at 4:30 pm, beginning on January 19th.   The class is complimentary for CBJ members, and the cost is $180 for non members.  

The class is for those who want to explore the beliefs and rituals of Judaism for conversion and is also perfect for those raised Jewish who want a comprehensive overview of the Jewish faith, rituals, and beliefs. Those participants studying for conversion will need to purchase the books that we will use.  To obtain further information and to register, please contact Rabbi Mills at

This class will consist of 15 Wednesday sessions, ending on May 4th.   There will be no class on March 23rd or 30th.  CBJ members are invited to drop in on these classes.  The Zoom link can be found in the Weekly Update.

Past Event: Conversations with the Authors of Jewish Books

Rabbi Mills has recommended a number of Zoom events that are shared by many Reform congregations and provided by the Jewish Book Council.  You may find the Jewish Book Council website to be an interesting resource for book lovers.

These programs consist of conversations with the authors of book club selections and also talks by authors on interesting topics.  Most events are held on Wednesdays at 8 pm.  All require advance registration.  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
