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.
Jewish Peoplehood - its complex origins, its implications and how it might be sustained. This is an issue of wide concern in the Jewish community today as the concept of a "Jewish collective" appears at odds with the contemporary ethos of intense individualism.
Through a series of video lectures, text study, and lively group discussion, we are again pleased to bring the world-renowned faculty of the Shalom Hartman Institute into the Kesher Israel community this year.
