(JTA) — A project to help interfaith families connect Jewishly will launch soon in Chicago.
InterfaithFamily.com announced it has secured funding for InterfaithFamily/Chicago, a two-year pilot program aimed at helping Chicago-area intermarried families find Jewish resources and connect with the community.
The program will include a website offering local and national resources for intermarried couples making Jewish choices, inclusivity training for Jewish professionals and lay leaders, and online as well as in-person classes for the families involved.
A full-time director will start July 1, said Ed Case, CEO of Interfaith Family.com.
The training will start in the fall, and workshops for couples will be held twice this year. Programs will be coordinated with existing resources provided by local synagogues, religious movements and Jewish institutions.
