Interfaith Outreach Conference: A Morning of Learning and Sharing
Schedule of Events:
9:00 a.m., "He Said, She Said - Male and Female Roles in Interfaith Families"Dawn Kepler will speak about how male and female dynamics play out in interfaith relationships. In our culture, women, no matter what their religion, are expected to be the primary homemaker and responsible for the children. How does this dynamic play out differently if the wife and mother is the Jewish partner or the non-Jewish partner? How can both partners work together to create a loving Jewish home and family?
