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.
(rewriting after initial attempt to post) Does the rabbi wish to share how he squares his initially stated logical obstacle for marrying 2 where both are non-Jewish? Has he reconfigured this concern? I can imagine determining to adopt a different legal framework, as in a Noahide approach, to satisfy the concern, but this option would have always been available to the rabbi, so the consideration for doing this now might be as apparent today as it ever was. So it could be good to hear from the rabbi how he has brought forward for himself this original concern.
