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.
Join us for our modern spin on the 600-year-old Rosh Hashanah ritual called Tashlique. This custom of ridding ourselves of all our bad vuggum from the previous year and getting a fresh start for the new one is traditionally enacted by tossing bread into the ocean.
For the last five years, we have reinvented this ritual, included live music, and even rebooted the spelling of the ritual (Tashlich --> Tashlique) to give it a fresh twist.
Join us by the shore at Ocean Beach for a brief, engaging ritual and joyful noise accompaniment from shofar (ram’s horn) blowers and bag pipers, Ralph Carney and members of the SF Jazz Mafia and the Ministers of Sound of the Saint John Will-I-Am Coltrane African Orthodox Church.
With S'mores and Rocky's Fry Bread as our sweet.
Bring stale bread to share and please bring your shofar!
In partnership with Reboot, GET FED (a program of the SFJCF), The Kitchen, InterfaithFamily/Bay Area, and Keshet.
