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.
Join Keshet & CJP for dinner and a screening of the documentary Paris Return. The film follows a gay Jewish couple in Paris struggling with the meaning of home and family. At 75, Roeven wants to return home to Israel for his final days but Pierluigi, who is ten years younger, is reluctant to leave their charmed life in Paris. Co-sponsored by Keshet and CJP's GLBT Team.
