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.
Poet and translator Peter Cole will read from and talk about his new book, "The Poetry of Kabbalah," with a discussion led by DePaul University’s Dr. Rachel Shteir. For the first time in English, "The Poetry of Kabbalah" brings to the public verse that emerges directly from Jewish mysticism. Cole provides dazzling interpretations of works composed on three continents over 1500 years. Cole has been recognized for his work with fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Guggenheim Foundation. In 2007 he was named a MacArthur Fellow.
