This booklet explains the history of Hanukkah, the symbolism and significance of lighting candles for eight nights, the blessings that accompany the lighting of the candles, the holiday's foods, the game of dreidels, and more!
Romemu (roh·meh·moo) seeks to integrate body, mind, and soul in Jewish practice. This is a Judaism that will ignite your Spirit. We are a progressive, fully egalitarian community committed to tikkun olam, or social action, and to service that flows from an identification with the sacredness of all life.
Join the San Diego Jewish Film Festival and Jewish Family Service to explore the interfaith family experience, including a screening of the film Out of Faith followed by a facilitated discussion. Out of Faith is a feature-length documentary that follows three generations as they struggle with complex and emotionally-charged conflicts over intermarriage, familial duty, ethnic identity, and cultural continuity and survival.
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.
