Downton Abbey Portrays Reality of Interfaith RelationshipsBy Gerri Miller
Go inside Season 5 Episode 9 where the story line of Atticus and Rose's interfaith relationship comes to a head.Go To Pop Culture
Our friends at STAR (Synagogues: Transformation and Renewal) issued an interesting press release today on their new survey of rabbis’ attitudes. Over 100 rabbis who are participating in STAR’s programs responded to questions about their goals and views of the future as the Jewish New Year begins.
Of particular interest to us:
‘These findings demonstrate openness to community diversity,’ says Rabbi [Hayyim] Herring [STAR’s executive director]. ‘The ground is fertile for these attitudinal shifts to be reinforced in programs and policies.'”
Attitudinal shifts in favor of reaching out to interfaith couples, reinforced in programs and policies–there’s a great New Year’s resolution!
STAR promotes Jewish renewal through congregational innovation and leadership development and is a philanthropic partnership of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, Jewish Life Network/Steinhardt Foundation and The Samuel Bronfman Foundation.
