Providing quality experiences to enrich the lives of the community at large with award-winning preschool programs, summer camps and a wide array of enriching activities. JCC Chicago provides the opportunities to bring Jewish values to the lives of everyone from infants to adults.
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.
