December 17 @ 7:30 pm ESTFree
For many families that have multiple faith traditions, navigating the December holidays can be challenging. Often, we worry that our children will be confused, or that we are somehow emphasizing one religion over the other. The truth is, families can send a clear and consistent message while celebrating different holidays. Join 18Doors Rukin Rabbinic Fellow, Rabbi Jessica Lowenthal, to talk through your family’s values and how to connect your different traditions this holiday season.
