Judaism and Conversion

Judaism is a rich tradition of rituals, practices, and beliefs. While our tradition tells us that we are to be a light to the nations, Judaism prohibits us from actively seeking converts to Judaism. Still, many people find their path to spiritual fulfillment through the traditions of Judaism. Judaism is a religion first of deed and secondarily of creed, meaning that it is our actions that lead to belief rather than the other way around. Conversion to Judaism is thus often an intense and extensive process.

Bet Ha’am offers the opportunity for you to explore Judaism more deeply, whether or not you are interested in conversion, or even if you were born Jewish and want to add to your Jewish knowledge base. If you are exploring Judaism and perhaps considering conversion, first know that our worship services, our adult learning opportunities, our holiday celebrations, and so much more are open to you. Please contact us if you’d like to learn more.

I’m interested!
