This colorful booklet will give all the basics about this holiday which combines elements of Halloween, Mardi Gras and the secular new year. It is a holiday not only for children who know immediately that anything with a costume will be fun, but for adults too.
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.
Author Joy Ladin will discuss her memoir Through the Door of Life: A Jewish Journey Between Genders at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center (333 Nahanton Street) in Newton on Tuesday, November 12 at 7:30pm.
In 2008, Dr. Ladin made headlines when after years of teaching at an Orthodox Jewish university as a man, she returned as a woman. She will discuss the transition process, not just of changing genders but of creating a new self.
Moderating the discussion will be Dr. Norman Spack, co-founder of Children’s Hospital’s Gender Management Service Clinic in Boston.
Open to the entire community. Interfaith families/individuals welcome. The program is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Boston Jewish Literary Series. Co-sponsored by Keshet. Cost is $8. Purchase tickets at www.bostonjcc.org/bookfair or contact 617-965-5226 or firstname.lastname@example.org
