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.
Participants in this full day of training will gain valuable skills to help interfaith couples communicate more effectively on the complex issues which challenge their relationship. The day will focus on understanding the meaning of each partner’s religious background as well as concerns involving parents and extended family. This training will provide facilitators with insights to enable interfaith couples to choose a clear religious identity for their children and will emphasize appreciation for the non-Jewish partners who choose to raise Jewish children. Please note this is a seminar style intensive training. Space is limited and registrations will be offered on a first come/first serve basis. Facilitated by Dr. Paula Brody, Director, Outreach Training Institute.
