Are you considering conversion, are in the process of converting, or have recently become Jewish?

Join us for a residential weekend at The Hawkhills in Easingwold where we shall enjoy a complete Shabbat experience together in a warm, open environment for questions and discussions.

You will meet others following a similar path, facing similar issues and create new friendships.

For the first time the Beit Din weekend will be part of a larger gathering – Reform Judaism’s Northern Chagigah is a weekend where members of all our northern communities come together for an immersive weekend experience. The majority of our sessions will be separate but Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday night, meals and some sessions you will have the opportunity to join in.

Challah and Wine

We will be led by Rabbi Jackie Tabick, Convenor of the Beit Din, Reform Judaism’s religious court which deals with matters of conversion.

This year we are delighted to invite those considering conversion through Liberal synagogues to join us on this wonderful weekend. We will be welcoming some rabbis from LJ to join us, we will hold at least one service from the Liberal siddur and provide space for Liberal candidates to talk about their journey to the Liberal Beit Din and the different expectations that will be placed upon them.

Obviously, to get the full benefit of the weekend you should join us in person. It’s so much easier to make friends, join in sessions and have wonderfully inspiring experiences of Shabbat and community in person. But, honouring our Progressive value of inclusivity, we will be offering some sessions that can be accessed remotely to help those who cannot join physically for the whole weekend you will be able to join through Zoom using the same booking link.

Partners, Jewish or non-Jewish are more than welcome.

Bookings are open here
