The Course

ITJ Denver students receive a notebook that contains a syllabus, schedule of classes, and suggested readings for the course. 

During the program, students are encouraged to:

  • Keep a journal
  • Attend Shabbat dinners
  • Do a short classroom presentation
  • Read selections from assigned books 
  • Attend special holiday workshops
  • Tours of synagogues and a tour of Jewish Denver are optional, but strongly suggested. 

The rabbis require students to read a book on the “History of the Jews” before beginning the class
