Becoming a Jew is not just a one-time declaration of faith but rather an evolutionary process that culminates in the adoption of a new cultural, national, and even historical identity. Conversion to Judaism requires serious study, active participation in Jewish holiday and lifecycle events, and, finally, a commitment to Jewish practice that is actualized by a rabbinically prescribed ritual.¹
Conversion classes are offered through the synagogue to those interested in becoming Jewish. The process will be overseen by the Student Rabbi and synagogue conversion coordinator. Study should be completed within two years of starting, although the timeline will vary with the individual. We strongly encourage new Jews by choice to become members once their conversion is complete.
