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.
It is my understanding that a B’rit Milah is not what makes a person Jewish. One is considered Jewish if born to a Jewish mother or father (Reform and Reconstructionist thinking) or has converted to Judaism. There are many Jews by Choice who are already circumcised and others who cannot undergo a circumcision for psychological and other valid reasons. Being a Jew involves more than whether one does or doesn’t have a foreskin. Incidentally – there are Jewish families who don’t circumcise their sons but have other baby naming and covenantal ceremonies in the synagogue.
