Parents, Children and Interfaith Relationships: Listening so they will talk. Talking so they will listen. 4 week class being taught at Gratz College in Elkins Park, PA by IFF/Philadelphia Director Rabbi Robyn Frisch. The class begins Oct. 28 & is being offered both Tuesday afternoons & Tuesday evenings.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
When my kids came “of age”,
I was a single mother working on my PhD and teaching part-time in Synagogue schools. So my two eldest daughters(13 and 12) were called to the torah in Synagogue; the party afterwards was pot luck in a friend’s backyard.
For my third daughter, we did the whole thing in a friend’s backyard (also potluck).
My son, had his ceremony in another friend’s backyard with a potluck dinner. Lots of singing and laughing and congratulating went on at
all three events.
For the latter two events, I served as Rabbi, since I was teaching Hebrew at the time.
I am glad to see others now creating alternative forms of a rite of passage.
