It is still cosponsored with Temple Sinai and New Lehrhaus.

I Love My Work!
Often people send me interesting questions and comments. When I posted the above program I heard from a woman who told me that she is from an interfaith family and feels she is part Jewish. She is a single mom and wants to raise her child partly Jewish too. There are just so many elements in that statement that indicate that she has to sort out her own unique path. Everyone must determine their own approach to Jewish engagement. I hope you’ll share your questions and interests with me.
