Classes offer free ‘Taste of Judaism’

The Union for Reform Judaism’s Taste of Judaism classes, taught by Temple Emanu-El’s Rabbi Batsheva Appel, will be offered at the Tucson Jewish Community Center on Sundays, Sept. 8, 15, and 22 from 2:30-4:30 p.m., and at Temple Emanu-El on Thursdays, Sept. 12, 19, and 26, from 6-8 p.m. Participants will learn about Jewish spirituality, values and community, and enjoy samples of Jewish foods in three two-hour classes.

The Taste of Judaism is free and open to all — Jewish or not. In the last 19 years, approximately 6,000 students have taken advantage of Temple Emanu-El’s Taste of Judaism classes. Although the classes are free, registration is required. To register and for more information, contact the Union for Reform Judaism by email at or by phone at (646) 793-3196, or call the Temple Emanu-El office at 327-4501.
