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.
First Night! will feature rollicking dance music by the Michael Winograd Klezmer Ensemble and Somerville's HONK veterans, the Dirty Water Brass Band, as well as an original Hanukkah ritual by Workmen's Circle members. The Hanukkah Party will be the world premier of The Michael Winograd Klezmer Ensemble's newest record, Storm Game, which will be released at the show. Johnny D's kitchen will prepare latkes (potato pancakes), a traditional Hanukkah specialty, and Workmen's Circle members will provide homemade sufganiyot (donuts). Please join us to dance off the calories all night long!
