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.
Jane Eisner, a pioneer in journalism and the first woman to serve as editor-in-chief of the Forward, will address, Where Are the Women in Jewish Professional Life? when she serves as guest speaker for this year's Celebration of Jewish Professional Life & Leadership.
"This is an issue for professionals, volunteers, and donors, regardless of gender," said Dr. Hal M. Lewis, President and CEO of Spertus. "At Spertus, where we believe that strong leaders build and sustain strong Jewish communities, we feel a special responsibility to bring this issue to the forefront. And Jane Eisner is the perfect person to foster the conversation."
Jane Eisner has been addressing this issue for many years. In a recent Forward editorial, she said, "I'm grateful for the incremental changes in workplace policies
and individual attitudes that I've witnessed...I'd like to believe the Forward's editorials championing women's leadership and the need for family-friendly policies in Jewish organizations have contributed to some modest successes and will encourage more. But we're nibbling around the edges."
