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.
5:00 pm Cocktail Hour (Cash Bar) / 6:00 - 9:00 pm Seder
Last year over 200 people showed up for our sold-out Philadelphia Seder, a new Gershman Y tradition that celebrates the themes and holiday of Passover through the rich contributions of the area’s artists, musicians, and dancers. This year showcases an all-new lineup including Master Storyteller and Narrator, Charlotte Blake Alston, Magician Ran'D Shine, Singer Songwriter Ross Levy and more. Our headline performer is the nationally acclaimed, local dance company Ballet X. This year, we’re moving to the Bellevue to accommodate even more people. This is one Seder you won’t want to miss.
Dinner is kosher-style, fish/vegetarian and prepared by the Bellevue’s Catering Services.
