Joys and Challenges of Raising Jewish Children in Interfaith Families
Sponsor Building Jewish Bridges
Type of Event Education
Description For Interfaith, intercultural families and those who love them Children offer us the remarkable opportunity to become our better selves. They challenge our assumptions, our patience, and our certainty. They also fill us with pride, worry, joy and a reason to make sacrifices. In a generation that has tried to balance freedom with discipline, children’s needs with parental desires, what are the unique strengths and weaknesses of interfaith families? From dental care to AP classes, parents exert their wishes on their children. How is religion different or the same as these parental choices? Join us for a discussion of how to find your family’s comfort point. We’ll talk about the challenge of parenting and the long term implications of the daily choices you make for your children.
