Raising a Child with Judaism in your Interfaith Family

February 5, 2014 5:30 PM

InterfaithFamily/Philadelphia and jkidphilly present InterfaithFamily's Raising A Child with Judaism in Your Interfaith Family, a one-of-a-kind online work-at-your-own-pace class for interfaith parents thinking about whether and how to bring Jewish wisdom, traditions, and customs to their home, their lives, and their parenting. This class will be facilitated by Tami Astorino, M.Ed. Raising a Child with Judaism in Your Interfaith Family is an eight-session class.

Each of the eight lessons is about a major parenting situation and how Jewish teachings and traditions offer insights about how to make these times meaningful and spiritual. We will explore bedtime and food and eating rituals, marking time with meaning on a weekly and yearly basis, doing good deeds, loving learning, spirituality and personal journeys. Every aspect of this class was created with modern interfaith families in mind.

Parents will be able to log on during the week and read interesting essays and/or look at slide shows that give background and literacy about the Jewish ideas involved in the lesson. Each lesson comes with "hear/read" files to help you learn how to say blessings in Hebrew, YouTube-type videos, family projects and bedtime book suggestions, personal stories written by other interfaith families who have tried these same aspects of Judaism in their lives, journaling questions, questions to discuss with your partner, shared discussions with other parents, and more.

This is a non-judgmental, supportive and open forum for you to learn, experience, question, and share. These eight lessons have the ability to positively impact the rhythm of your interfaith family's life!
