Love this podcast!

Rabbi Carrier is a great resource and I love listening to his insight on all things Jewish. This podcast is a wealth of knowledge and yet super accessible for those who are just starting out or just starting to be curious. He’s definitely one of my favorite resources and has been an indispensable resource in my conversion process.

I like it!

I came across Jewcurious on YouTube. As someone who is beginning my learning journey the few episodes I’ve listened have been a great resource for me. It’s especially helpful to be able to listen in my car on my way to work. Thank you!
