Half Jewish? Part Jewish? An eighth Jewish on your grandfather’s side?
You don't need to quantify or qualify your Jewishness! We welcome you and everything you bring to the table at Jewish& - a program that explicitly gathers multi-faith, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic folks and families for Jewish exploration, education and celebration.
From our ‘Building The Jewish& Coobook’ workshops to our Jewish Foundations classes, webinars on celebrating holidays and life cycle events from a Jewish& perspective, and our monthly community zoom check-ins, Jewish& is here to meet you wherever you are on your Jewish journey.
