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.
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.
