Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.

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.
