‘American Idol’ for Westchester rabbis

Posted by: Gary Stern - Posted in "Introduction to Judaism" series, Rosenthal JCC in Pleasantville NY, Shul shopping on Jan 09, 2009

You often hear about newcomers to the suburbs going “shul shopping” or “church shopping,” trying to find the right house of worship.

Jews who want to get a feel for eight Westchester rabbis now have a relatively easy way to do so!

The Rosenthal JCC in Pleasantville is beginning a 15-class “Introduction to Judaism” series this Tuesday (Jan. 13). It will cover all the Big Stuff — Torah, the sages, keeping kosher, holidays, lifecycle events, prayer, Kabbalah and more — and will be taught by the following rabbis:

  • Rabbi Joshua Davidson of Temple Beth El
  • Rabbi Steven Kane of Congregation Sons of Israel
  • Rabbi Douglas Krantz of Congregation B’nai Yisrael
  • Rabbi Seth Limmer of Congregation B’nai Yisrael
  • Rabbi Geoffrey Mitelman of Temple Beth El
  • Rabbi Jason Nevarez Temple Shaaray Tefila
  • Rabbi Mark Sameth of Pleasantville Community Synagogue
  • Rabbi Jeremy Winaker of Bet Torah

So come try ’em out. The whole series costs only 36 bucks.
