Inquirer’s Class

Welcome to the B’rit Hadasha Inquirer’s Class!

If you want to become a member of B’rit, or if you just want to learn more about us, then you’ve come to the right place! Over the next four sessions, we pray that you will come to understand us and our community better… and will catch hold of the excitement and adventure of what G-d is doing in our midst.

Introductory material, as well as each session’s reading assignments, are available here. Please be sure to read the assignments for each session before we meet. In each session, we’ll review and discuss what’s in the session’s and answer your questions.

Come prepared to discuss the material for that session—not future ones! 😉 The materials have been organized so that they logically build on one another from session to session. Being prepared for the session’s review, discussion, and Q&A will help you get the most out of the time we spend together.

The main thing is for you to read the documents that we’ve linked here. Each week, we recommend additional reading—these are all great resources and we recommend them as a supplement to what the documents cover, but they are not a substitute for reading the documents that we’ve linked here.
