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.
Despite all of your mind games, Jews w/non-Jewish fathers have only about a 25% chance of marrying Jewish which means their parents’ relationship is a smiling, slow motion GENOCIDE! So many (most?) intermarried couples do not bother seeing the results of other intermarried couples & somehow think “we’ll be different.” But I remember meeting their children on campus & their angst of not knowing where they belong, despite all of the “beautiful” declarations of their parents.
