Let this booklet guide you through the High Holy Days with your children with helpful suggestions for conversation points, activities, crafts and ways to make the days interesting and relevant to kids and teens of all ages.
Rabbi Mychal will be leading us in a discussion of interfaith relationships throughout Jewish history and the present challenges and opportunities they pose. This discussion will provide a foundation for the second part of the series in which we will explore the many realities of interfaith relationships, including challenges we have faced and our varied approaches to our own interfaith experiences.
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 applaud these camps for allowing interfaith families entry. As a child in the 60′s I looked forward to going with my best friend to sleepaway camp. The camp, not listed here (in PA) disallowed my enrollment because my mother was not Jewish. I was 8 years old. It affected me greatly. Martin Luther King had died that year and it just seemed like discrimination. I became very disenchanted then, but I am actively Jewishly as an adult. I would have benefited greatly by going to sleep away with my friend, rather than ruining my take on her and her family and culture. Thank G-d for my parents who understood.
