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.
The Diller Teen Fellows is a national youth leadership program for 10th and 11th graders currently available in 16 cities in North America and Israel. In Boston, the program is administered by the Jewish Community Centers of Greater Boston. Twenty Boston area teens - the JCC Boston Diller Teen Fellows - are selected based on leadership aptitude, commitment to Jewish learning, interest in exploring their connection to Israel and passion for community service. The Fellowship year runs from September 2013 to December 2014 and includes 10-12 Sunday afternoon workshops, three weekend retreats, two overnight experiences, 10-day hosting of a Diller Teen Fellow from Haifa in the spring and a three-week summer seminar in Israel. Applications will be posted on www.bostonjcc.org/diller beginning April 29 and accepted until May 31. Learn more about the Diller Teen Fellowship at an information session on Sunday, April 28 (5-7pm) or Sunday, May 19 (6-8pm) at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center (333 Nahanton Street) in Newton.
