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.
I am a Cantor in South Florida, and travel throughout the U.S., and the world – working with unaffiliated families. I perform private B’Nai Mitzvah services, custom designed for the family’s needs. I have several tutors on my staff who tutor via Skype, and I or my Rabbi partner perform the service in your location, if you cannot find someone in your local area.
I come to NC often, because you will definitely have a difficult time finding someone who is based there, because you have to have a fairly large unaffiliated Jewish/Interfaith population to sustain that practice, and you probably don’t find that where you are.
I hope you have found someone. Private B’nei Mitzvot have become quite popular, and in many cases Rabbis/Cantors will even have tutors they work with who will train your son/daughter at a lower cost per session than the Cleric. In any event in the Northeast this is not a problem. I know IFF is working on this issue for people like you, however if you (or anyone) needs a name outside of the NY metro area, or inside, I will do my best to help (No guarantees, and I would ask IFF first!)
Good Luck, and nothing but Mazel to you and your family.
