Attention Parents: A New CBI Program Designed Just for YOU!

Thanks to a recent grant received in the Creating a Welcoming Website competition, Congregation B’nai Israel is pleased to sponsor “The Challenges of Jewish Parenting in a small Jewish Community,” a series of workshops dedicated to parents with children ages kindergarten through high school. Parents of children from both Etz Chayim and Congregation B’nai Israel are warmly invited to attend. The grant competition was sponsored by the National Center to Encourage Judaism and the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs’ Keruv (to come closer) program, spearheaded by the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs (a constituent arm of the Conservative movement), which was formed to answer the needs of interfaith couples and families, and, in the words of the Torah, to “welcome strangers into the tent.” Congregation B’nai Israel welcomes interfaith families into our synagogue family through our Keruv program. Keruv programming provides opportunities for congregants to explore issues relating to intermarriage in a safe and supportive environment.

Workshop times are Sundays at 10:00-11:30 a.m.

  • As an intermarried family, how do we respectfully navigate life cycle events on both sides?
  • How prepared is my college-bound child to stand up as a Jew and supporter of Israel?
