Welcome to Thresholds, the place for the Jewishly curious in Northern New Jersey and New York. 

What is Thresholds?

Thresholds is a Jewish life education center and Interfaith resource consultancy, providing education, support and guidance through a variety of resources. Thresholds is dedicated to helping you navigate your way into and around Jewish life and the Jewish Community.

Thresholds offers classes, guidance, support and consultancy to inform, inspire, advise and facilitate your next Jewish steps in an open welcoming way and from a pluralistic perspective. 

Who is Thresholds for?

Maybe you are interested in converting.  Maybe you aren’t, but you’d like to know more about Judaism.  Maybe you are already Jewish or are part of an interfaith relationship.  Are you planning to raise Jewish children –with perhaps one Jewish parent- and you could benefit from some education or support.  Are your adult children in an interfaith relationship or is it unclear if your grandchildren are or will be Jewish? Have you converted and feel you would benefit from another resource for questions or support?

Thresholds is for Jews and non-Jews who are finding their way into Jewish life: for those considering or pursuing conversion; for interfaith couples and families or non-Jews with Jewish family and children.

We welcome all regardless of affiliation, denomination, religious, cultural, racial or national background or sexual orientation,   No previous background, synagogue or denominational affiliation or membership is required.  We are here for Jews and non-Jews, couples and singles, parents and grandparents.

What is required of me?

Thresholds requires neither a commitment to any form of Jewish belief or practice nor a commitment to conversion or a synagogue. Teaching from across the Jewish denominational spectrum, our goal is to help you clarify and navigate your Jewish choices, take your next steps and find your place on your Jewish path, wherever they may be. 

With sessions offered in the warmth and comfort of a private home as well as in institutional settings, many of our programs are supplemented with home Sabbath meals and/or accompanied visits to local synagogues.
