Family Gathering with Rabbi Conover
Sponsor Temple Sholom
Type of Event Social
Interfaith family gathering
Description You’re invited to join Rabbi Conover and her family at their home on Saturday, December 10th at 4pm (with an option to come at 3:30pm to schmooze even more). This is sure to be an interesting and informative early evening as we provide an opportunity for interfaith couples to share winter holiday experiences, challenges, questions and solutions. You will walk away with a better understanding of Chanukah as well as practical tools and resources for creating a meaningful winter celebration in the home that reflects the real values of this holiday and this season. We’ll talk about ways to include non-Jewish family and friends in your celebration and how to share in the non-Jewish celebrations of extended family and friends. Feel free to bring some holiday treats and/or recipes to share. It should be a great early evening of discussion, noshing, and bonding! People are welcome to arrive at 3:30pm to hang out and schmooze. Then, we’ll start the program at 4pm. The kids will go downstairs to engage in activities with wonderful Gan Shalom teachers. (Snacks will be provided.) At that time, the adults will continue with our discussion. We’ll finish up the learning by a little after 5pm so that we can all join back together for a brief Havdalah ceremony in which we welcome in the new week. Space is limited so please contact Kevin as soon as possible to reserve your spot.
