Welcome to




Taking place over the course of three sessions, Answering Your Jewish Children is designed to supply fathers of other religious backgrounds whose spouses/partners are Jewish with practical information and guidance to help them raise Jewish children in the context of an interfaith marriage.

Each session will present the key questions and answers involved for fathers who are raising Jewish children but are not Jewish themselves. Session topics will include: the "big" questions that children ask about life, death and God; holidays and rituals; and Jewish values and ethics.


Please contact Sarah Sechan at SSechan@joi.org or 212.760.1440 for more information about how to bring this free, three-session program to your community.


Answering Your Jewish Children is a program of Big Tent Judaism/Jewish Outreach Institute.
