Parents, Children and Interfaith Relationships: Listening so they will talk. Talking so they will listen. 4 week class being taught at Gratz College in Elkins Park, PA by IFF/Philadelphia Director Rabbi Robyn Frisch. The class begins Oct. 28 & is being offered both Tuesday afternoons & Tuesday evenings.
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.
There are many misconceptions about the meaning of these words, both within and outside Jewish communities. During this study session, we will discuss the intent of these words through the lens of the dramatic stories in Exodus that describe our birth as a nation/people. These chapters include the story of Jethro helping Moses create a tiered court system, the public revelation of God to an estimated one million people at Sinai, and the giving and receiving of the Torah and Ten Commandments.
Please read Exodus: Chapters 18-20, and the second version of the 10 Commandments in Deuteronomy: Chapters 4 and 5.
Rabbi Devon Lerner leads this discussion. All are welcome.
