Conversion:

As Jews, we believe that there are Jewish souls who have been separated from the Jewish people. We trust that some day they will find their way home to Judaism. Are you one of them?

 

We are thrilled to be accepting new conversion candidates.

Conversion candidates must take an Introduction to Judaism course or Florence Melton Class and study privately with Rabbi Evon Yakar via Skype once a month. Rabbi Yakar is based in South Lake Tahoe, California and teaches students all over the world. Of course if you live near Lake Tahoe, such as in such as in San Francisco, San Jose, Fresno, Reno, or Stockton you can study with him in person occasionally when you come to Lake Tahoe to ski, snowshoe or hike! Otherwise, we find studying by Skype to be very effective.


Our conversion course takes a minimum of one year. We want you to be able to experience a full year of Jewish holidays and festivals while you are studying with Rabbi Evon Yakar for conversion, so that he can help you glean the most meaning out of each of them.

The fee of $1,800 includes:

  • 12, one-hour meetings with Rabbi Evon Yakar over Skype
  • One-year membership to the Adventure Rabbi: Synagogue Without Walls
  • Rabbinic supervision at the mikvah immersion
  • Rabbi Evon Yakar and Rabbi Jamie Korngold's presence on the Beit Din
  • Conversion Ceremony.

    The following are not included:
  • Mikvah use Fee ($180)
  • Payment to the third rabbi on the beit din ($180)
