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 wonderful! I was just talking to my friend who is attending pre-cana classes with her fiance and I began to wonder why the Jewish community does not have something similar. I am Jewish and my fiance is Christian. I would love to attend these classes. I think it’s important and it sounds like fun! Do you know of any such classes in Long Island, NY?
Contact your jewish community center. I am taking a counseling class for interfaith relationships there. I truly recommend it as it has been interesting in helping my boyfriend and I realize whether we can compromise on the religion aspect before an engagement.
Yes, InterfaithFamily/Philadelphia will be offering a similar program in 2013. There is also counseling provided by Jewish Children and Family Service. If you need more information, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
