Living Jewish Wisdom Course


A multi-denominational course, ideal for those exploring a deeper connection to Judaism.
Each person’s journey towards Judaism is organic and individual. We invite you to explore Judaism and your growing relationship with it through the lenses of different Jewish denominations. This course introduces the central Jewish ideas and practices, texts and experiences that form the foundation of a Jewish life. This course will give you the tools to choose an informed, healthy and whole commitment to Jewish living and the Jewish people, whether you are already Jewish, considering conversion*, or simply curious about a Peoplehood different than your own.

“This course is wonderful. The teachers are friendly and open. Anyone with an interest in religion is well advised to take the course and gain a fascinating insight into Judaism.” – John, 2015 student

“The strength of the class is making one comfortable to question and be critical of all the information presented. The instructors were sincerely committed to my learning without proselytizing.”  – Ivan, 2015 Student

*This course is solely an educational endeavour. Enrolling does not guarantee conversion. An individual who chooses to pursue conversion will choose a mentoring rabbi/educator and will continue the process based on the rabbi/educator’s specific denominational requirements. The partners of conversion candidates are expected to participate fully in the course. If students choose to pursue conversion, there will be additional fees outlined by the mentoring rabbi/educator.
