This is an 8-week class.

Rabbi Adar has taught students from the Reform, Conservative, and Reconstructionist traditions. She welcomes students from many places: curious about Judaism, converting to Judaism, just want to understand Jewish relatives better, and some who just began working for a Jewish nonprofit. She welcome students from marginalized Jewish backgrounds: persons of color, LGBTQI persons, and students with disabilities. Rabbi Adar herself is a lesbian with disabilities, and she became a Jew as an adult. She is a member in good standing of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the Women’s Rabbinic Network, and the Northern California Board of Rabbis.
