Join the San Diego Jewish Film Festival and Jewish Family Service to explore the interfaith family experience, including a screening of the film Out of Faith followed by a facilitated discussion. Out of Faith is a feature-length documentary that follows three generations as they struggle with complex and emotionally-charged conflicts over intermarriage, familial duty, ethnic identity, and cultural continuity and survival.
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.
this is stupid because I don’t think Tori Spellings life in Beverly Hills has any connection to a village in Africa… she doesn’t have to worry about her son catching aids and ding! No one in that society is gonna have aids !! and most jewish people and the societies they live in are probably not gonna have aids… so it’s not the same argument for jews or rich ppl in america as the argument you’re making about people in a village in Africa
If any valid reason exists for circumcision, trying to make the child’s genitalia look like the other kids at camp sure ain’t it. And, neither is , “That’s what Jews do.” Jews are technically supposed to marry other Jews, so how jewish can the kid really ever be?
Tori should start reading Questioning Circumcision: A Jewish Perspective by Ron Goldman. She needs some sense to be talked in to her. I know she is hung up on aesthetic issues, having grown up in Hollywood, but still….
I never understood the significance of circumcision as it applies to the bible. Why was it so important (in biblical days), for a male child to be circumcised? I got the impression that it was necessary in order to be a follower of Jesus/God, but why?If god created us, why didn’t he just leave the foreskin off to begin with?
