Judaism Your Way
November 3, 2009
My family is interfaith and we discovered Judaism Your Way several years ago when we were searching for a rabbi who would consent to marry us in a combined Jewish/Christian ceremony. We found in Judaism Your Way an organization and a staff that has been so supportive and inclusive of our family and our needs. We felt very excluded from the synagogues we had went to with family and friends; a community that was very vocally against any kind of interfaith marriages and family. Judaism Your Way opened their doors to us, and because of this we have found a new community of interfaith friends, religious experiences that our family feels comfortable with, and spiritual dialogue that we felt was missing in our life. My husband, who is Jewish, had been very unconnected from Judaism for years. He further distanced himself from Judaism when we received no warmth from other Jewish organizations and synagogues when we searched for a spiritual home as a family. Now, he embraces his Jewish identity more and is comfortable in continuing to explore his Jewish roots and spirituality. As a non Jew, I feel very welcomed. I have always felt comfortable in asking questions and seeking knowledge, even when I know it is very basic. We look forward to celebrating more life events with Judaism Your Way as our family grows: baby namings, child education, and family spiritual events. Judaism Your Way is a part of our spiritual family!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
in our family spirituality being nourished, as well as knowing other families who feel they've been given a spiritual home when no others existed.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
is how open, warm, and inclusive an environment it is. They offer programming that meets social, spiritual, and intellectual stimulation.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
warm and friendly.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
promote it's message and programming nationwide. Sometime I think it is a shame that people in other cities miss out on the opportunities presented by Judaism Your Way in Denver.
