TI REACHING OUT--THE DECEMBER (AND APRIL) DILEMMA: 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? Will children raised celebrating Christmas and/or Easter feel Jewish when they grow up?


Nothing seems to stir up feelings quite like the holiday season. Celebrations that should be joyful can become a source of conflict, and finding solutions that make everyone happy can be difficult. How do you decide which traditions to celebrate in your family? 


Join other interfaith families from Temple Israel and around Fairfield County to explore these issues.
