Taking place over the course of three sessions, Answering Your Jewish Children supplies fathers of other religious backgrounds whose spouses/partners are Jewish with practical information and guidance to help them raise Jewish children in the context of an interfaith marriage. Each session will present the key questions and answers involved for fathers who are raising Jewish children but are not Jewish themselves. Session topics will include: the “big” questions that children ask about life, death and God; holidays and rituals; and Jewish values and ethics.
