JScreen provides convenient, at-home, saliva-based genetic carrier screening with the goal of preventing Jewish genetic diseases such as Tay-Sachs disease and Canavan disease. JScreen is a national program and is headquartered at Emory University in Atlanta.
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.
Thank for for this! As you know, we very much agree on this point (while respectfully disagreeing on others). Even though I am raising my children with both religions, or perhaps because I am doing so, it is very important to me to respect the integrity of separate holidays. That doesn’t mean we don’t point out similarities (the light), the points of historical connection (Pharisees), and the differences. So when you say Chrismukkah “can only confuse children being raised with one religious identity in an interfaith family,” I would agree and add that it could confuse any child in any family (interfaith or not, raised in one religion or two or three or none). It bothers me when people (see this week’s Forward) assume that families celebrating both holidays are celebrating Chrismukkah. Not true, as your survey shows, and as this website (and my blog) explains.
If how chrismukkah adds to family traditions, then his might be an interesting read. The author of his blog wrote something rather funny, but also nice, about her version of chrismukkah and its traditions
