REACHING OUT-AN INTERFAITH AND MULTICULTURAL PROGRAM         (Summary: 2416)
HAHN-BURGETT, TRACY AND CHABOT, NANCY JO

The Reaching Out program provides a forum for discussion of the often difficult issues that arise in today’s multifaith and multicultural families and society.  The program attempts to reach out to congregants in various stages of life. While some issues affect nearly everyone of us at one time or another—such as living as Jews in a predominantly Christian community, other very critical and troublesome issues are primarily relevant only to people at a particular stage of life—for example, how to integrate relatives of other faiths into a brit milah or simchat bat. This program aims to cover both types of issues. In all cases, the Reaching Out program endeavors to enhance interfaith and/or multicultural understanding and to assist families as they work out how to deal with these issues in their own lives. The sessions have included a special Shabbat dinner honoring nuclear and extended family members of other faiths, a field trip to the sanctuary, the December dilemma and others.
