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
Facilitated by Ora Prochovnik 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 from 7 – 9 pm on the first Monday of the month for five months beginning in February: February 3, March 2, April 6, May 4 and June 1.

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 (, or the synagogue office at 415-861-6932.




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