Providing quality experiences to enrich the lives of the community at large with award-winning preschool programs, summer camps and a wide array of enriching activities. JCC Chicago provides the opportunities to bring Jewish values to the lives of everyone from infants to adults.
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 think you are failing to mention one of the issues with you marrying a non-Jew. The Jews are an ethnicity and you are ethnically half Jewish. If you marry a non-Jew, your kids will only be one quarter Jewish. I would venture to guess that part of the reason you feel such a connection to the Jewish people is because you are half Jewish by blood. If Jewish blood is further diluted down to 1/4, 1/8, etc., it is unlikely your descendants will feel much of a connection at all. The same could be said for any ethnicity.
