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.
How Should I Know serves men in committed interfaith relationships. The three-session program provides men with information and strategies for creating a Jewish home. Participants in the program will be empowered to answer their partners’ questions about Judaism and clarify their positions on having a Jewish home and raising Jewish children. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to share challenges they have encountered or anticipate encountering—for example, balancing the religious concerns of both sets of grandparents, the unification of family, celebrating non-Jewish holidays in the home and finding a welcoming Jewish community.
“How Should I Know?” will be facilitated by Stephen Friedman and take place at the Richard Rodda Community Center in Teaneck on November 30, December 7 and 14. For more information, please contact Amy Bolton at (201) 837-9090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
