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.
It’s been 3 hours since you woke up.
You’ve played with all the toys, gone through all the games.
And you realize it’s just 8 a.m.
Then it hits you!
THANK GOODNESS IT’S SHABBAT!
Come to Temple Israel for TGIS on the 2nd and 4th Saturday from September through June at 10 a.m. (New participants, please come at 9:30 to meet other TI FYC families and get settled before TGIS starts at 10 AM.) TGIS is a special service for anyone between the ages of 6 days (don’t come before that, you’ll be too tired!) and 6 years. We have planned a morning of dancing, singing, playing and praying led by local musician, Wayne Potash.
We want everyone to have a chance to celebrate Shabbat at least twice a month so we can all say “TGIS!” (“Thank Goodness It’s Shabbat!”) TGIS is made possible by support from the Marilyn and Mike Grossman Caring Community Program and the Reuben and Lizzie Grossman Fund. No registration necessary. Please contact Laurena Rosenberg at 617-566-3960 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
