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.
Applications are now being accepted for B’naiture, our two-year program for ages 11–13 that starts in the fall.
B'naiture is a two-year, experiential program for girls and boys that uses nature as a vehicle to explore the transition from childhood to adolescence. B'naiture is forging a new Jewish pathway for nature and soul-centric B’nai Mitzvah. The journey begins when entering 6th grade (generally age 11).
This groundbreaking program weaves Jewish teachings, story, and song with personal challenges, outdoor skills, non-parental mentorship, peer group community building, and nature awareness activities to provide an embodied way for youth to explore coming-of-age.
All children are welcome to apply for B'naiture. We welcome Jews, non-Jews, interfaith families, LGBTQ families and children, and people of color.
