Interfaith Program

​ May 15;  7 pm at JCC

 

The Jewish Federation of Reading is working with our synagogues to create programs to enhance the inclusion of interfaith families in our Reading Jewish community. We invite members of our interfaith community to attend a brainstorming session. We want to explore what obstacles you are encountering and what programs should be developed to encourage meaningful inclusion and engagement in synagogues and our Jewish community. We want to help you build strong Jewish homes and lives while embracing the richness that a multicultural family life brings; and hope that with increased participation you will develop an increased feeling of belonging.
