Adult Education

Learning is a fundamental component of an engaged Jewish life.

Sometimes people feel undernourished by their Jewish education experiences. Many people who come through our doors tell us they know there’s more to Judaism than what they’ve learned as kids, but they’re also intimidated by what they don’t know. Or daunted by how much it seems like one is supposed to know to feel “entitled” to walk through a Jewish door.

At Judaism Your Way, the goal of our adult education programs is to help people discover their own voices within Judaism, to figure out what their way is – in terms of what they believe, what they will do, and what roles Judaism will play in their lives. We offer Judaism as a resource, not a prescription.

Open Tent: Jewish Spirituality Courses

In January 2014, JYW piloted Open Tent: Judaism for Grownups, an opportunity for adults to explore Judaism on their own terms. This fall, we will offer two mini-courses, “What Does God Have To Do With It?” and “Meditation, Blessing and Prayer: Finding Jewish Spirituality Your Way.” Click here to learn more.

Holiday Programming

We regularly offer classes and workshops in advance of holidays, giving participants the opportunity to deepen their holiday experience, or explore a new aspect of the holiday. Click here to sign up for our mailing list to be contacted about future programming.

Community Your Way

An opportunity to meet new people and connect with the JYW community by joining a small group/Havurah.

There are three groups currently operating in Denver: an Arts & Culture group that attends concerts, plays, movies, and galleries; a Shabbat Potluck havurah that meets once a month to celebrate Shabbat at a different member’s home; and a Jewish Renewal minyan. To sign up for any of these groups, click here.

Interfaith Couples Groups

Since our inception, JYW has been helping interfaith couples deepen understandings, have conversations, and create ceremonies.  We have also offered groups specifically for interfaith LGBTQ couples.
