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 was searching for anything pertaining to mourning and came across you site. You mention how death/mourning is not spoken of very much.
What I am searching for is a place that is willing to address those of us who are single but have lost a child and also have lost our Faith as well. There is nothing out there for us. If you talk to a doctor they say it is depression. It is not. It is sadness. There is a difference. There isn’t a dating site, not a mourning site and not a site that understands that although Hope that isn’t our own still lives in us, we feel lost in this Darkness of sadness and Time doesn’t heal all wounds. We search for that hand of any Faith that will reach back. We are alone because no one addresses us either. We walk this Earth feeling forgotten. Like all the people that pass us by on the street, we don’t exist. But we do and I for one am reaching out. Will you reach back?
