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.
Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation celebrates Humanistic Judaism, honoring Jewish culture and tradition while empowering independent, human-centered choices. We celebrate being Jewish through our human-focused philosophy of life. Human beings have the intelligence and wisdom to determine the purpose and course of their lives. Kol Hadash empowers its members to make independent choices, to live lives of integrity and dignity, and to create positive change in the world. If you live a secular lifestyle, Humanistic Judaism helps you live Jewish identity with philosophic consistency. Imagine the satisfaction of truly saying what you believe and believing what you say, celebrating your personal beliefs and your Judaism in one voice--that’s Humanistic Judaism and Kol Hadash.
