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.
One year, my Christian aunt and Jewish uncle hosted a seder, and my aunt put a beautiful very blue egg on the seder plate. She checked with my parents (both Jews) to make sure it didn’t bother them to have an Easter egg on the seder plate. That led to an epiphany years later. Dyeing eggs is fun, but who really needs that many hard boiled eggs? A large family seder! It’s all the better because kids get to show their beautiful eggs off to a large audience. We haven’t done it enough to be a family tradition, but maybe it will become one with my children’s generation.
