Parents, Children and Interfaith Relationships: Listening so they will talk. Talking so they will listen. 4 week class being taught at Gratz College in Elkins Park, PA by IFF/Philadelphia Director Rabbi Robyn Frisch. The class begins Oct. 28 & is being offered both Tuesday afternoons & Tuesday evenings.
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.
I don’t think it’s “pretending Jesus doesn’t exist.” Rather, when having a joint or interfaith service, it makes more sense to focus on that which we have in common (God), not that which separates our religions (belief in Jesus as messiah). Jews and Christians alike can find meaning in saying a prayer to God; Jews do not pray to Jesus and will likely not want to say or participate in prayers that mention his name or are directed at him.
