Sponsor Gratz College
Type of Event Education

A nationwide online class offered in collaboration with InterfaithFamily

The online class available nationwide begins the week of June 16, 2014 and will be three weeks long. Plan to spend two hours a week on class work, although you may choose any two hours that suit you. The class is open to all supplementary school teachers across the county.

Instructor: Rabbi Robyn Frisch, Director of InterfaithFamily/Philadelphia

Most supplementary schools officially welcome children of interfaith families today, but what does it really mean to be welcoming?

Using our own experiences and case studies, we will explore "best practices" for handling issues that come up with students from interfaith homes and their families with grace, respect and integrity.

The NEXT program is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, but all supplementary school educators are welcome to enroll in NEXT summer classes for a modest fee. Supplementary school educators in Baltimore, Cleveland, Hartford, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and the Greater Palm Beaches can register for NEXT online classes either for free or at subsidized tuition rates through the generosity of their central agencies and federations. Please visit the NEXT website to learn more or to register.
