Unlocking the December Holidays – For Couples with Young Kids/Thinking About Kids – Online
December 9 @ 8:00 pm ESTFree
Join 18Doors Rukin Rabbinic Fellow Rabbi Danny Weiner and other interfaith couples with and without kids, to learn about Hanukkah and how to make it meaningful. We’ll also create a safe and non-judgmental space to discuss the challenges and blessings of navigating the December holidays as an interfaith couple. Issues to be considered include: How do you talk about the holidays with your parents and extended families and how are they involved in your holiday celebrations? Do you (or if you don’t yet have kids, do you plan to) celebrate the holidays differently with kids than you did before having kids, and if so, why? There will also be time for couples to discuss questions on their minds or issues that they are struggling with.
