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 hope eventually you will get to see the good side of the Christian part of your heritage as well as the ‘contagious’ parts, LOL.
It is a very rich spirituality.
I’m the child of an intermarriage who was raised Christian, and my parents suppressed all mention of Judaism in the home.
I’m now a rabbinic student and lead the Half-Jewish Network.
I know that our respective parents thought that they were doing the right thing, but I would suggest that children being raised in one faith do need to know some positive things about their other half, or they develop ideas that the other “half” is bad or contagious.
