The Online Experience


Karaite Jewish University will post teaching lessons on its course management system "Moodle" website. We maintain a library of over 400 articles.  Through the Moodle site students will access lesson material, quizzes and library. We use Google Groups as our forum for exchange of ideas and announcements.


Admission into the course does not guarantee, suggest or imply that a student will automatically be allowed to participate in the Conversion Ceremony.  Participation in the Conversion Ceremony is based upon theological and religious considerations independent of successful course completion. The Conversion Ceremony is carried out by the Karaite Jews of America, an institution unaffiliated with the KJU.
