When my husband read an early draft of this essay, he asked, "Why doesn't her partner have to support our daughter? After all, they agreed to raise children as Jews." What does it mean to raise a Jewish child?
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.
Join us for an afternoon of fun family crafts, great music, candy apple decorating (and eating!), face painting, honey taste-testing, sweet round challah eating, free raffles, and helping to repair the world as we gather food from this cool urban farm to donate to surrounding area food pantries and soup kitchens.
This FREE family day is open to the whole community. All are welcome, Jewish or not! A special, warm welcome to interfaith families. GRANDPARENTS are welcome also!
This program is sponsored by Reform Jewish Chicago/ Union for Reform Judaism, in partnership with InterfaithFamily/ Chicago.
