Introducing My Faith and My Community: The Jewish Outreach Institute Guide for a Christian in a Jewish Interfaith Relationship
You can understand your Jewish friends and loved ones more fully. A hands-on guide to the most important questions.
Introducing My Faith and My Community provides an introduction to both the basics and complexities of Judaism and Jewish life through the lens of an interfaith relationship. Rather than providing stock answers to questions about Jewish rituals or values, or giving a broad overview of Jewish history and theology, Rabbi Kerry M. Olitzky addresses topics that will encourage understanding and stimulate discussion between you and your Jewish partner, relative or friend. Topics include:
- Beliefs, Religion and the Place of God in the Jewish Faith
- Study, Learning and Charity as Core Values in Jewish Life
- Food, Holidays, Humor and Ethnicity as Part of Jewish Culture
- The Importance of Synagogue, Israel and Community to American Jews
