Celebrating Holidays in the Interfaith Family

HOME SWEET HOME: Celebrating Holidays in Interfaith Families
Christmas and Chanukah, Easter and Passover, December and April can be challenging times for Jewish families and interfaith families. The whole country seems to be wrapped up in a holiday that Jews don’t observe. Can an interfaith family celebrate both holidays? How would that work for the kids? Why do Jews react against Christian holidays? Can the anxiety be eased? Will children raised celebrating Christmas and/or Easter feel Jewish when they grow up? Join other interfaith families from BIJ and around the Bay Area to explore these issues.

Place: Beth Israel Judea, 625 Brotherhood Way, San Francisco
