Let this booklet guide you through the High Holy Days with your children with helpful suggestions for conversation points, activities, crafts and ways to make the days interesting and relevant to kids and teens of all ages.
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.
We offer a program called Sarah's Tent, a monthly gathering in a home in Metropolitan Detroit that welcomes individuals in interfaith relationships and Jews-by-choice who want to build a foundation and/or expand their Jewish knowledge and strengthen bonds to Judaism. Sarah's Tent provides opportunities for participants to meet and create new friendships with other individuals interested in learning about Judaism from rabbis and educators from all denominations of Judaism. Participants have a chance to address joys, concerns and questions in a relaxed, supportive setting. Sarah's Tent is co-sponsored and facilitated by Jewish Family Service and Federation's Alliance for Jewish Education. Sarah's Tent is a two year curriculum that discusses Holidays and Observance, Jewish Life Cycles and December Dilemma. We include field trips to different congregations and Jewish agencies to learn more about Judaism and community resources. For more information contact Debbie Rosenberg at 248-642-4260 x537.
