Our Year Of Firsts: Parenting (Cincinnati)

October 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT










Join us for bi-monthly meetings with other Jewish/interfaith* (multi-faith, mixed heritage) parents! We know that there are countless decisions you’ll have to make as a parent, so let us help you–at least with the Jewish ones! We’ll alternate between in-person sessions (complete with dinner and a childcare stipend so YOU can choose who watches your baby!) and Zoom sessions, all culminating in a Hanukkah party with parents and children.

Our Year of Firsts: Parenting Edition will launch a new parenting program targeting interfaith couples in their first year of being parents as a partnership between a national leader in interfaith engagement, 18Doors, and Rabbi Meredith Kahan of Rockdale Temple. The goal is to provide low barrier settings for participants to build community, connections and confidence in participating in Jewish life and raising Jewish children.

Dates of sessions:

October 4th (in person at Nine Giant Fermentoriam)

October 18th (on Zoom)

November 1st (in person at Nine Giant Fermentoriam)

November 15th (on Zoom)

December 6th (In person or on Zoom. To be determined at a later date)

December 13th (In person family Hanukkah Party)
