Temple Emanu-El is offering its free “Taste of Judaism” course for the 15th year in Tucson and Green Valley.

This free introductory course offers samplings of Jewish spirituality, values and community in three sessions.

Rabbis Samuel M. Cohon and Batsheva Appel will lead the courses, offering information for people who want to learn about Jewish history, practice, rituals and culture.

“This fun, interactive course comes with a side of delicious homemade ‘tastes’ of traditional Jewish foods prepared by the temple’s Women of Reform Judaism,” according to a news release.

Classes are being offered at Temple Emanu-El, 225 N. Country Club Road, as well as northwest and east Tucson and Green Valley.

There are daytime and evening classes, and child care is offered at a Sunday afternoon series.

The temple is partnering with the Tucson Hebrew Academy to offer the Taste of Judaism Family Class with a separate program for kids at the same time as the regular adult class.

Taste of Judaism has had more than 5,000 participants over the past 14 years.

“The Taste of Judaism series is certain not only to inform, but to make Judaism more meaningful and accessible,” Cohon said. “We are able to make Judaism enjoyable for everyone, while preserving the integrity of our great tradition.”

The series is free and open to everyone.

For reservations or for a full schedule, call 327-4501, Ext. 27, or email Mila Vasser at mila@templeemanueltucson.org
