Rabbi Mychal will be leading us in a discussion of interfaith relationships throughout Jewish history and the present challenges and opportunities they pose. This discussion will provide a foundation for the second part of the series in which we will explore the many realities of interfaith relationships, including challenges we have faced and our varied approaches to our own interfaith experiences.
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.
Am Kolel is a Havurah, a Resource Center, and a Renewal Center that welcomes interfaith families. As a Havurah, we are a community where our members find fellowship, guidance and support for all life cycle events, birth through death; for Shabbat and holidays; and for learning and tikkun olam community service. As a Resource Center for our members and for the larger community, members of our staff may be called upon to provide programs and guidance to individuals and institutions, Jewish and non-Jewish, in the Greater Washington, D.C. area. Am Kolel houses an extensive library of volumes and videos. As a Renewal Center devoted to the revitalization of Judaism and the Jewish community, we offer opportunities for individuals to rediscover and discover a Judaism that is spiritually and socially meaningful; a Judaism that speaks to the heart and also to the issues that we face in our daily lives; a Judaism that is compassionate towards others and towards this earth.
