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 dynamic 2013-2014 JconnecT Sunday Morning Live will be beginning on October 6th.
Students can sign up for both classes --Hip Hop Hebraics for modern, conversational Hebrew and Contemporary Jewish Issues -- or just one.
The students meet online with their peers to interact, learn, explore and express their own ideas as they learn concepts relating to Judaism and Israel.
This program is great for kids who live in an area where there are no Jewish congregational schools, who don't integrate into an existing religious school framework or who want a more meaningful Hebrew School experience than what is available in their local community.
Students can join the first JconnecT class for free on October 6th to get an overview of the program and decide whether it's right for them. The classes are taught by English-speaking teachers who are based in Israel.
The program includes two Shabbatonim at the Margolin Hebrew Academy in Memphis where the students can meet each other and experience a Shabbat with their peers.
Interested parents, students and other community members are welcome to write to JconnecT for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
