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.

Journey to Judaism: A Discussion Group 2019
Facilitated by Ora Prochovnick and Rose Katz

This discussion group will explore issues that arise for people who are considering, are in the process of, or have recently completed, converting to Judaism. Those with a Jewish parent (or parents), but raised with little or no Jewish experience and are interested in exploring their connection to Judaism are also welcome to attend. Topics will include questions of identity, community, and family. This group is not an introduction to Judaism course, but rather a place to ask questions and discuss issues with others who are also on this journey.

The group will meet one Monday a month for six months on January 14, February 11, March 11, April 8, May 13 and June 10 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

Please note: In order to create a comfortable environment, this group will not be open to new participants after the second session.

There is no charge for this group, but pre-registration is required. For further information, or to register, please contact Rose Katz at 415-567-3327 ext. 706 (


We celebrate your unique background and honor your hopes for the future. We look forward to meeting you!
