When my husband read an early draft of this essay, he asked, "Why doesn't her partner have to support our daughter? After all, they agreed to raise children as Jews." What does it mean to raise a Jewish child?
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.
For Clergy, Educators, Jewish Professionals & Lay Leaders: This symposium will focus on successful strategies to nurture Jewish choices for in-married and interfaith families with very young children. Models of community programming reaching parents of infants and toddlers will be presented and creative marketing opportunities for reaching unaffiliated families will be discussed. A panel of new parents will voice their needs for Jewish community connections. Symposium will integrate text study, including parenting based on Jewish values. Kosher refreshments & program materials provided.
