The class begins Oct. 28 & is being offered both Tuesday afternoons & Tuesday evenings.

Listening so they will talk. Talking so they will listen.
As parents, we have expectations about what our children will be like when they grow up. Sometimes it's hard to accept our children's choices, especially when they fall in love with and decide to spend their life with someone who grew up in a different faith tradition. As children, sometimes we expect our parents to accept our choices without appreciating how difficult that may be for them. Almost every family in the liberal Jewish community today is touched by intermarriage, and in this workshop participants will have the opportunity to discuss their own feelings about interfaith relationships and explore how to best communicate about this sometimes very emotional issue in a way that is both honest and respectful.
This workshop meets four consecutive
