Issues of the Inter-Couple/Family

Eric Kollin, Rebeca Madrigal

Identity & Global Culture

Whether interfaith, intermarried, or interracial, there are issues that are common for all intercouples or interfamilies. This session is an interactive guided discussion where participants will delve into the issues and share stories, questions, and solutions for the new Jewish family. Topics include identity and fitting in, dealing with family and friends, weddings, family rituals/holidays, joining a community, education (religious, cultural, and language), the role of grandparents, and more.
