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.
Join us for an evening of Fun, Food and Observance
with a special Or Chadash flair!
Compete in our “Lots of Food” Cooking Contest
or just vote (Chicago style) for the tasty winners.
Next, hear how Esther saved the Jewish People during our Persian exile
as we read the Megillah in English.
Last but not least, we'll have our delightfully irreverent Purim Shpiel!
This event is BYOB
