The article notes that Elana is best known for is coordinating outreach programs specifically for interfaith families and couples. Elana is quoted as saying, â€śOne of the great challenges and opportunities of the current and future Jewish community is to provide a warm and welcoming environment for interfaith families and extended family members who arenâ€™t Jewishâ€¦ Interfaith families are searching for ways to connect with the Jewish community and Judaism in ways that are comfortable as well as meaningful.â€ť
Jewish communities donâ€™t often enough single out for praise people working to engage interfaith families in Jewish life and community. Itâ€™s significant that both the Hartford federation president and JCC executive director sing Elanaâ€™s praises in this article. And the honor couldnâ€™t happen to a nicer and more dedicated and capable person. Congratulations!
