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 married couples where one partner is Jewish. The program teaches about Judaism and helps couples find ways to strengthen Judaism in their homes and their lives. The program will focus on experiential workshops and seminars, hiking and community as participants explore what Judaism means in their lives and in the lives of their families.
Only for married couples; no children on the program (though future programs may include children)
The program will be based in Tzfat at the Livnot campus and will include hiking and other travel in Israel.
The program’s cost is $2400 per couple. This does not include plane fare. We are looking into the possibility of financial assistance to reduce the cost but we won’t know about that possibility for awhile.
