Explore how you and your partner can create an appropriate holy space in your interfaith home that feels right for you. 18Doors Rukin Rabbinic Fellow Rabbi Cheryl Jacobs and Jewish Collaborative of San Diego’s Rabbi Gabi Arad will lead a discussion of, among other things:

  • The mezuzah, which is traditionally hung on the doorpost of a Jewish home
  • What makes a home “Jewish?”
  • How to address these issues with children/future children
  • How to navigate the various holidays with family members of different faiths

We will meet via Zoom on January 18th from 7:00 – 8:30 PM PST.
