Come learn with us as we use the tools of Personal Narrative to grapple with important questions affecting relationships within our intermarried families. These will include:
* How to deal with our feelings of loss and our fear of not being understood?
* How to create the right environment to be heard by one another?
* And, in the midst of understanding each other, how to appreciate otherness?
This workshop will be facilitated by experts in the field (bios below) along with Rabbi Ari Saks (Beth Mordecai) and Reverend Anne-Marie Jeffery through a combination of conversation, text learning, and developing a piece of our own narratives.
We invite all couples who come from different Jewish and Christian backgrounds to join us. Please RSVP to Rabbi Saks (email@example.com) by Thursday, April 7th.
THIS WORKSHOP IS BEING SPONSORED BY FAITHFUL FAMILIES, A COMMUNITY OF COUPLES WHO COME FROM DIFFERENT FAITH BACKGROUNDS
There will be a similar workshop - “PLEASE UNDERSTAND ME”: How to Positively Engage with Your Intermarried Family (Grandparents) - for Jewish grandparents (and grandparents-to-be) whose children have married someone who comes from another faith tradition on Sunday April 10, 7:30-9pm at Congregation Beth Ohr (70 County Rd 516, Old Bridge).
