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.
The goal of this group is to provide a social and networking space for adult children and other descendants of intermarried Jews. You may be an adult child of a Jewish father or Jewish mother - or you may have a Jewish grandparent. You may be an adoptee, stepchild, or other non-biological descendant of an intermarried Jew. You may come from a multi-racial or mixed-heritage family. You may identify as Jewish, Christian, secular, as a member of another faith or culture, “both,” “neither,” or “undecided.” You may be part of the GLBTQ community.
As it turns out, you are not alone! Few studies have been done on adult children of intermarriage, but as the intermarriage rates increase, our numbers are growing. This is the place to:
* Swap stories about growing up in an interfaith family & bridging two or more cultures;
* Explore the cultural or spiritual aspects of Judaism in a welcoming environment;
* Talk about encounters with anti-Semitism;
* Share cultural or religious resources;
* Discuss ways we are raising our kids;
* Enjoy books and popular culture.
