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.
It is a shame that the Dr. could not be more sensitive to your needs at that moment. The sad thing is you should have answered proudly yes I am Jewish because my father is Jewish and the reform movement adopted to accept patriarchal lineage in 1996.
Dr X is a miserable excuse for a doctor, a man and a Jew and a mohel. I apologise to Laurel (and all the other Laurels out there) that Doctor X (and all who think and act like him) seemingly continue to decide for the entire Jewish world who is or isn’t a Jew. Judaism would a lot better off with more Laurel Snyders and many less Dr Xs.
