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.
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.
