Journey to Judaism Program

At Sha’ar Zahav, we encourage you to explore the spiritual and life-affirming path of Judaism.  Whether you are interested in exploring conversion, want to connect to the Judaism of your partner, or want to deepen your own Jewish background, you are welcome.

Discussion Group

Our Journey to Judaism Discussion Group is offered to all who are new to Judaism and Jewish practice. Each session begins with a presentation from a Sha’ar Zahav member who has chosen Judaism, followed by conversations on questions of identity, family, community and Israel. In order to create a comfortable and confidential environment, we ask you to commit to a set of six sessions. The group will not be open to new participants after the second session.

In 2016-2017, the Journey to Judaism group will meet monthly on the second Monday of each month.

The group, co-facilitated by Ora Prochovnick and Rose Katz, is offered free to all, but pre-registration is required.

Contact Sha’ar Zahav member Rose Katz at 415-567-3327 or our Director of Engagement, Adam Pollack at or 415-610-5083.   We celebrate your unique background and honor your hopes for the future. We look forward to meeting you.
