Online or In Person
Students work through their online classes, while having monthly meetings with their Rabbi (phone, Skype or in person). Once you are done with your online learning, you and Rabbi Marc will schedule a time for your beit din and mikveh.
Independent or Guided Study
All students who enroll in our program have the opportunity to participate in scheduled weekly phone calls with Rabbi Marc Rubenstein. These weekly phone calls are completely optional, yet highly beneficial – especially for students who are new to practicing Judaism and living a Jewish lifestyle.
It is also understandable that many would prefer to study independently and on their own. Whether you choose self study, or Rabbi guided study, the option to study at your own pace remains. We want to know that we are here for you if you need us, and we stand by to assist you in any way that we can.
Inside you will find Rabbi Marc’s personal Email, and phone number so you can contact him at any time.
Study at your own pace from anywhere in the world
The online course is study at your own pace and all video based learning. Each section contains the basic knowledge one needs in order to pass a final interview process. When you log off the course, and back in again, the course will continue where it left off making it easy for you to proceed with your learning. At the end of each topic, you will be able to download PDF files containing review questions and answers that can be used for your final exam. The online curriculum contains the following topics: Jewish history, What it means to be a Jew, The life cycle of being Jewish (from birth to death), Dietary Laws, Common objects found in a temple and a Jewish home, and the Jewish Holidays. Scheduled phone calls, Skype, or FaceTime meetings are also available to each student depending on the learning package selected.
