Share "Half Jewish?" The Heirs of Intermarriage - Colloquium 2012

Event Details

How will the heirs of intermarriage change Judaism?

Can you be "Jewish and" rather than "Jewish or"?

Can the Jewish world handle "half-Jewish"?

Is being "half-Jewish" no big deal anymore?

 

Colloquium 2012 will speak to a crucial issue for the future of the American Jewish community.  For the last two decades, half of marriages involving Jews have been intercultural.  The children of those relationships are coming into their own as young adults.  Who are they?  How do they define their own identities? 

 

 

Secular Humanistic Judaism has served intercultural families with dignity, respect and understanding for decades. Our cultural Jewish identity meets the needs of many in this diverse community. The International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism offers this program in cooperation with Newberger Hillel at the University of Chicago and Fiedler Hillel at Northwestern University.
