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.
“If your mother is Jewish, you are Jewish, period,” is correct. However a Jew without a Brit Milah, is like an American citizen born on American soil but never had a passport, social security card or birth certificate.
It’s so great that you are able to think critically about a blood ritual that has gone on so long without being seriously questioned! Bravo. The Brit Shalom is a wonderful ceremony and the fact that it doesn’t include genital cutting on perfectly normal healthy infant boys is a step in the right direction.
