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 envision a future in which Judaism is experienced as accessible, inspiring and vital to the vast majority of Jews. The contribution of JEWISH MILESTONES to the realization of this vision is in harnessing the transformative power of lifecycle rituals, forging a new professional path for facilitators of ritual and encouraging candid discussion of the de facto reality of contemporary North American Jewish life that is lived primarily outside of a synagogue framework.
Jewish Milestones accomplishes its mission by serving as an educational resource for:
Individuals, couples and families who are seeking personalized, educative consultations and ritual-related referrals.
Ritual Facilitators, professionals and lay people, to cultivate reflective practitioners, promote best practices and help augment their capacity to serve in the context of their own communities.
Jewish communal organizations, researchers and all those interested in exploring the various fields that intersect with our work (such as Jewish practice among non-synagogue members, the needs of interfaith families and innovation in Jewish ritual).
