Providing quality experiences to enrich the lives of the community at large with award-winning preschool programs, summer camps and a wide array of enriching activities. JCC Chicago provides the opportunities to bring Jewish values to the lives of everyone from infants to adults.
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.
