Rabbi Mychal will be leading us in a discussion of interfaith relationships throughout Jewish history and the present challenges and opportunities they pose.

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.
Local author Dale Stanten will discuss her book, The Hooker’s Daughter: A Boston Family’s Saga, on Wednesday, November 2 at 10am at the Leventhal-Sidman JCC (333 Nahanton Street, Newton).
