"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
Kaplan.

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
straightforward.

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.
