"Mixed Blessings: The Challenges Facing Jewish-Christian Families" -
Weds., March 22
Wednesday, march 22
5:00 - 8:00 PM, Wednesday, March 22, 2006
Berenson Hall, Hebrew College

Journeys on the Hill invites you for free pizza and a movie!

"Mixed Blessings: The Challenges Facing Jewish-Christian Families"

Dinner, film screening and discussion with the film maker, Jennifer

Sponsored by Journeys on the Hill (JOTH), as part of our ongoing
2005/2006 programming on rites and passages, Christian and Jewish
approaches to the life cycle.

We teach our children to wash their hands and brush their teeth. But
when it comes to religious traditions, our path may not be so

For some families, the journey is clear and certain. Others travel a
bumpier road with many surprising turns.

This program will explore the challenges of interfaith couples as they
raise their children. The film is a window into the lives of four
families, each responding in a different way.

After watching the film together, we will have the opportunity to
engage each other and the film maker in discussion, and to reflect as
theologians, as pastors-to-be, and simply as concerned Jewish and
Christian individuals.

Newton Police to Speak on Wednesday, March 22
As many of you know, we have had several sightings of an unauthorized
person in Farwell Hall. We are taking steps to address this situation,
but it's a reminder that we need to take basic precautions in order to
keep the campus safe. Toward that end, on Wednesday, March 22 from 5-6
pm in the Small Dining Room, Detective Dave Schaefer from the Community
Policing area of the Newton Police Department will meet with interested
students in the Small Dining Room of the cafeteria to discuss general
safety issues. I invite you to take this step toward becoming more
aware of how we can keep our community safe.
