In an era when at least half of all Jews in America reaching adulthood are children of intermarriage, the topic of how we embrace interfaith (mixed heritage) couples and families is of vital importance to our Jewish community. On March 26, Hebrew College will host a full day program exploring, reflecting and examining how we can fully and authentically embrace this topic. This program will allow Hebrew College students, faculty and staff, along with the greater Boston community, an opportunity to hear a multiplicity of viewpoints in a much-needed conversation.
The program will include a panel discussion focusing on personal experiences, a text study, a presentation on demographics and current cultural overview of what “interfaith” families are. We will also focus on bringing together local Jewish Organization’s leaders to share their experiences and best practices to fully embrace Interfaith couples and families within their organizations. The event is part of the inaugural year of programming of the Hebrew College Innovation Lab.
