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.
What a great article. As a practicing reform Jew engaged to a Christian, I can really related. Last year, Passover overlapped with Easter. My experience was almost the reverse of the one mentioned in your story. I had to explain to my Fiance’s family why I wasn’t eating many of the food they prepared for Easter – the ham and many of the side dishes were not kosher. I still don’t think they quite get it, but my fiance has been very supportive. Let’s just say that the next time they overlap, I will probably be eating at home before the big family meal.
