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.
Fascinating article. I’m not sure what to comment about it – I’m still taking it all in. But what food for thought. Ironically, I was a person raised by two Jewish parents in a mostly secular home, despite weekly religious school and holiday meals. I never once dated a Jewish man. Now here I am, married to a non-Jew, more Jewishly identified than ever before in my life. And wanting my children to feel that same way. I wonder what being Jewish FEELS like to them. Am I wrong to hope they have strong Jewish identities even as I live in a community in which they are literally the only two Jewish kids in the whole school? Hmmm – thoughts, thoughts.
