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.
Cycle Six of volunteering is launching... with a celebration of service (and ice cream!)
ReachOut! is a 10 week long volunteer program, where participants volunteer one night a week in small groups with one of our partner organizations. Have questions? GREAT- the Launch Event is just the place to get those questions answered!
While you\\\'re at our Launch Event, connect (or reconnect) with the ReachOut! volunteer community AND take part in our volunteer project with Birthday Wish! Birthday Wish is an organi
zation that throws birthday parties for youths living in homeless shelters. We\\\'ll be putting together goodie bags for a few of their upcoming parties!
Wondering what else might be in it for you? We’re running a raffle—anyone who brings someone new to volunteering will be entered for one of our fabulous prizes. (That’s one ticket for YOU and one ticket for your friend).
