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.
Thank you to Rebecca for sharing her story. I am a mother of 3 young children- and our family is also an interfaith family. I was raised as a Christian and my husband is Jewish. We are raising our kids in the Jewish faith. We joined a reform synagogue that is very liberal and accepting of interfaith families. They are accepting of everyone for that matter.
I also feel that our family has the best of both worlds being exposed to 2 different religions/cultures/traditions. I want our kids to be open minded and accepting of others. What is important to me is what kind of people our kids grow up to be- kind, confident, motivated, educated, tolerant, happy individuals. We want to pass on our family traditions, and our morals and values. And I think we are doing that everyday!
