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.
yes his surname is clearly Lithuanian ( at least the – “avicius”part of it ) which is my ancestry and, curious about his background as he was described as French and Jewish, I came upon your site while trying to find out more about him. My grandparents were lucky enough to leave and emigrate to the US in the early 1900′s; his evidently went to France. Your amusing remark about a Jewish battalion in the Roman army is not so far off the mark: “Lithuanian still retains many of the original features of the nominal morphology found in some ancient Indo-European languages like Sanskrit and Latin, and has therefore been the focus of much study in the area of Indo-European linguistics.” Anyway, congratulations to Michel and PS I enjoyed reading/learned some things from your site. Thanks!
