Have you been considering taking an introduction or beginning Judaism class? Anytime is a good time to start. Many bay area classes have rolling enrollment; so say you entered the class in March, you would finish up in Feb. or 2013. You wouldn’t be going to class non-stop, but classes would feed into each other from term to term.
There are lots of reasons to take a class. Some people do take it for conversion but that is only one reason. Some non-Jews take the class out of curiosity, some because they are marrying a Jew. Some Jews take the class because they didn’t get a strong (or any) Jewish upbringing. Still others just love to study. Whatever your reason, you’ll meet other engaged adults, make friends and have a darn good time!
