Growing Up Interfaith – a 2016 Conference


Growing Up Interfaith
Stats, Facts, and Testimonies

Since the advent of the term “interfaith” the Jewish focus has been on the intermarried couple. Research has not explored the experiences of the children of these couples. This conference will be a forum for these previously unheard voices. Adult children of interfaith couples will discuss what parental and communal practices empowered them to feel comfortable in their own skins and safe to explore the identity they chose. Dr. Bruce Phillips will speak on his in-progress study of adults from interfaith families. Other topics include multi-cultural Jews, patrilineal Jews, and best practices for interfaith parents raising children. More details will be announced in January.

Supported by the Ingrid D. Tauber Philanthropic Fund of the JCF and the Koret Foundation
