What is Exploring Judaism?

Exploring Judaism is the digital home for Conservative/Masorti Judaism.

Exploring Judaism is the home for Torah that embraces the beauty and complexity of Judaism, and our personal search for meaning and learning. There is always something to learn and explore.

Exploring Judaism seeks to help people find explainers on subjects they wish to learn more about, practical guides on how to observe Judaism, and reflections on how to make life more meaningful.

Our approach is rooted in Conservative Judaism and in the ideas that Judaism grows with us, that we’re guided by process, and that there is beauty in the balance.
