Let this booklet guide you through the High Holy Days with your children with helpful suggestions for conversation points, activities, crafts and ways to make the days interesting and relevant to kids and teens of all ages.
Rabbi Mychal will be leading us in a discussion of interfaith relationships throughout Jewish history and the present challenges and opportunities they pose. This discussion will provide a foundation for the second part of the series in which we will explore the many realities of interfaith relationships, including challenges we have faced and our varied approaches to our own interfaith experiences.
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.
Nate Bloom, column writer here. Actually, I did mention the actor, Adam Pally, who plays the gay Jewish character in Happy Endings in a November column. As I said in the first paragraph of the item–it wasn’t quite an interfaith celebs item, but it did concern an African American character and a Jewish character teaming up to be Bar Mitzvah DJs. Bottom line: Adam Pally is Jewish, but he is not gay. He is married to a “hometown” Jewish woman and they had their first child about 18 months ago. Here’s a link to that column: http://tinyurl.com/b9mn554
