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.
People will feel about it the way they feel. There is no right or wrong way.
By “a circumcision,” do you mean a bris or just a circumcision in the hospital after the birth?
Personally, I feel having both ceremonies makes no sense.
A bris welcomes the child into the Covenant of Abraham and marks him as a Jew.
A baptism joins him to Jesus and marks him as a Christian.
You cannot be both.
