We at JOI are always excited to help start new Mothers Circle courses. The program receives such a positive response from participants, that we are eager to offer the course in more locations. We are extremely encouraged that Beth Tzedec, a Conservative synagogue in Toronto, is implementing a Mothers Circle course, and that it has received the same great response that the program has seen elsewhere in Canada and the United States.
There is a clear need for the Mothers Circle, a program for women of other backgrounds raising Jewish children, and Beth Tzedec is acknowledging this fact by offering an opportunity for these women to meet and learn together about raising Jewish children. The Conservative movement has been more accepting, as of late, of intermarried families, and synagogues like Beth Tzedec can help set the tone for a more welcoming, inclusive future.
We wish this new Mothers Circle the best of luck, and look forward to hearing from the participants on their experience!
