Half Jewish? Jewish Identity for the 21st Century Part 2
Sponsor Edlavitch JCC of Washington DC
Type of Event Education
Description We all know someone who considers themselves “half Jewish.” Maybe you use that label yourself. But what does that mean, exactly? This discussion-based class encourages you to think about your multifaceted Jewish identity and how it interacts with all the other pieces that come together to create you. The Jewish community has been a complex place from the beginning. Tradition says that a "mixed multitude" of Israelites, Egyptians, former slaves, and others who had married Israelites stood at Mt. Sinai to receive Torah and become the nation we speak of today. In this interactive conversation we will explore the differences and similarities between how we identify ourselves in relationship with Judaism and the Jewish community, and how others see that relationship. As we discussed in the first Half-Jewish class, these are not always the same thing. Didn't come to the Half-Jewish session in February? That's okay! This session will build upon our previous Half-Jewish discussion, but you'll be just fine without it.
