This colorful booklet will give all the basics about this holiday which combines elements of Halloween, Mardi Gras and the secular new year. It is a holiday not only for children who know immediately that anything with a costume will be fun, but for adults too.
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.
Thanks for sharing the article. After reading it, I thought of this: “Frontline, From Jesus to Christ…The First Christians” at PBS.org here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/religion/
I think you, your daughter, and your husband might gain a great deal from this series as it delves into the cultural, religious, and political elements that Judaism faced 2,000 years ago under hegemony of Roman Empire – and how Christianity broke and moved away from Judaism, morphing into a dominant social, political, and religious force under Constantine. The 4 parts to this series are brilliant, well-produced, and instructive on many levels. I think it will help your daughter understand the cultural nuances between the proponents of both Judaism and Christianity.
