Wandering or Wondering: Stories of Spiritual Journeys
Sponsor Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta
Type of Event Education
Description Just as everyone has a name, we each have a story. Judaism is a tradition of storytelling since its inception, and includes tales of those who are Jewish, as well as those who are connected to Judaism in one way or another. Come hear the tale of a Christian man who married a Jewish woman and shared Shabbat with her very large Orthodox family in Jerusalem. Find out what it is like to be an African-American woman, raised as a Christian, who married an Orthodox man and now have two children together. How about being Christian and gay in Alabama and now an active member of a local synagogue? What if you found out that as a child of a preacher, you were drawn to Judaism and discovered you had Jewish roots all along? What is it like to be a child of interfaith parents with a mother who converted after many years of marriage? Each story is unique, special, and most intriguing. Come hear these stories, ask some questions of our panelists, and share your story as well. Dessert reception to follow. RSVP to or call 678.812.4161.
