Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.
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.
As the products of interfaith families, we have unique stories to tell. Join writer Rebecca Spence for a four-week workshop in which we’ll give voice to our experience. Through weekly discussions and creative writing exercises, we’ll explore the themes and narrative threads that arise when we allow ourselves the space. Born to an interfaith family herself, Rebecca is keenly aware of the particular sensitivities and conflicts that can arise within ourselves, as well as in our families and Jewish communities, when we negotiate identity. The story-telling process itself, regardless of experience level as a writer, can be healing, and sometimes cathartic. By the end of the workshop, you can expect to have completed a solid draft of your story.
