We at JOI are always excited to share the impact of our programs and methodologies on Jewish communities throughout North America. Recently, the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis implemented a video project to catalogue the wide variety of exciting Jewish programming in the area. One of the people interviewed was Patti Freeman Dorson, who has facilitated JOI’s Mothers Circle program in Indianapolis since 2008. Check out the video of her interview below:
We would like to thank Patti for sharing her experience with The Mothers Circle and explaining how the program helps to build strong Jewish families that are fully participating in the Jewish lives of their communities.
We would also like to thank Patti for her mention of Public Space Judaism, a phrase coined by JOI for a methodology of outreach that we’ve been refining for a decade. JOI continues to promote Public Space Judaism in various communities through a wide variety of innovative programs, such as Color-Me Calendar for the Jewish New Year. We are pleased to see this term become ubiquitous among Jewish communal professionals who are incorporating the methodology into their programming.
