Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.
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.
My husband is jewish and I am not. We have two boys. Each one of them had a bris. I had no disagreement with that and was happy to celebrate. However, the boys are being raised as Christians. They go to church with me and actively participate in the church including Sunday School. My oldest is ten years old and my husband tells him that he must be bar-mitzvah. I completely disagree and find it completely dishonest to have him participate in such a custom that he doesn’t know nor has he been raised in. Can a child be bar-mitzvah in this kind of situation. I find this problematic and confusing to my son. I would really like your perspective.
