JScreen provides convenient, at-home, saliva-based genetic carrier screening with the goal of preventing Jewish genetic diseases such as Tay-Sachs disease and Canavan disease. JScreen is a national program and is headquartered at Emory University in Atlanta.
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 am a Jewish grandmother of a 21 year old young man who is also Jewish. My son (his father) was formerly married to a Jewish woman, and is currently married to a Catholic. My grandson and I often talk about Judaism and Israel. Recently we were in the back seat of my son's car, with my daughter-in-law in the front passenger seat. I was starting to tell my grandson about Israeli social issues. i.e. secular/haredi conflicts, when my daughter-in-law suddenly shouted for me to stop talking, she couldn't stand hearing any more about anything related to Judaism; she said I was being disrespectful to talk about such things within her hearing, as she is Catholic. Was I out of line? Thanks.
No, you weren’t out of line. Clearly, your daughter-in-law is extremely sensitive. You are not alone. I would bet that she finds other things “wrong” with your behavior, things that have nothing to do with religion. (I hope I’m wrong, but I’m speaking from experience.)
That said, your grandson thankfully is a Jewish adult, so I’d suggest connecting with him on these issues outside of her earshot. Good luck.
