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 have been asked to write a blog for a play to be presented to the Jewish community in Boston. This is our chance to educate the Jewish community about how they and the rabbis might be helpful to us. I would like to know if any of you talked with your rabbis before your children married "out", and/or before the bris or naming.
What did the rabbis say that was helpful and what did they say that was not? What did other community members say that was useful and what did they say that was not?
Responses will be kept anonymous. (You can post them here, message me through my user account, or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org who will forward them to me.)
As I said, I want to use this opportunity to let people know of some of the unnecessary hurts our community gives to intermarried families and to educate them about what would be useful.
