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.
I hate to say this but I sense a lot of defensiveness in the writer. If you have to “defend” your choice, then there is a part of you that is not comfortable with what you have done. The writer should simply accept the fact that there are congregants who will not agree with her decision: that does not make them “close minded” – it makes them true to their own beliefs on what constitutes a good Jew and yes, for many people, marrying Jewish is part of that.
