Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.
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.
What a well written article. We are also an interfaith family sending our children to a Jewish day school, and we have found that nearly all of our negative assumptions about Jewish day schools have not been true.
The school is very diverse, with students from many countries, religious backgrounds, and races, the academics are exceptional, and most of all, our children are happy and enjoying their education. We’ve also found that several children in each of the classes are from interfaith families.
I’d bet if more interfaith families looked into this option, they’d be very pleasantly surprised at what a nice fit a Jewish day school can be for their own family.
