Conversion

Whether you have been considering conversion for years or are just dipping your toe in, come learn with us.

Mishkan’s Conversion Cohort is led by Mishkan Rabbi Jeff Stombaugh and veteran conversion educator Rabbi Allison Tick Brill, with guest appearances from Rabbis Lizzi and Lauren and other movers and shakers in the Chicago Jewish scene.

This is a class for people on the path toward Judaism, with no commitment to convert, but the option to at the end of the 8 month class, running November through May.  Our Cohort participants commit to:

  • Learning with curiosity and open mindedness.

  • Sharing space, opinions, beliefs, and questions.

  • Respecting others’ perspectives, boundaries, and beliefs.

  • Acting kindly, creating physical and emotional safety.

  • Being generous and giving the benefit of the doubt, as everyone is coming with different levels of familiarity, comfort, and context to this Jewish space.

The cost is $450 for Builders and $700 for general registration. Price adjustments and payment plans are available if needed. Email Rabbi Jeff with any questions.
