Shabbat - Choosing to be Jewish
Sponsor Kahal Am-The Humanistic Jewish Community of San Diego
Type of Event Religious Services
Description Within the range of religious choices in the world, Judaism is an option that many might not choose. The proportion of Jews to other groups is small; the history has its share of dark moments; and prejudicial attitudes are still imbedded in modern society. Yet to some, identifying as a Jew is preferable to the cultural practices they were born into. Secular Humanistic Judaism welcomes people born into a non-Jewish family to adopt Judaism as their preferred philosophy, rather than requiring conversion, as long as someone is educated in Jewish culture and history, and vows to support the Jewish people. At the October 19 Shabbat, Madrikha Beverly will present inspiring stories of people who chose to be Jewish. Soloist Janet Hammer will provide musical accompaniment and an oneg will follow.
