The Mothers Circle Mini Sessions

Are you raising Jewish children... but you’re not Jewish? Don’t do it alone! Have fun while learning about Jewish rituals, ethics and the how-to’s of creating a Jewish home. Responding to the needs of women who are not Jewish but raising Jewish children, the Mothers Circle program:

  • Offers free education in Jewish rituals, practices and values.
  • Creates a warm, supportive community of women who have made similar choices for their families.
  • Respects the participant’s choice to retain her own religious identity while providing a Jewish family life for her children.

The Mothers Circle, a program of the Jewish Outreach Institute, is funded by The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.


How Should I Know?

A program for Jewish men with spouses/partners of other religious backgrounds.

Facilitator: Debbie Blonder
A three-session workshop that provides Jewish men in a committed interfaith relationship with the tools they need to better explain to their partners why having a Jewish home and/or raising Jewish children is important to them. Highlights include:

  • How to tell your Jewish story in a way that matters to your whole family.
  • Balancing the religious concerns of both sets of grandparents.
  • Understanding the various Jewish positions on lifecycle events and holidays to make your own better informed decisions.
  • …and more!
