Kahal Am, Humanistic Jewish Community presents an adult education class entitled: Half Jewish: Heirs of Intermarriage. There will be a video lecture featuring: Lynn Davidman, Professor of Sociology and Religious Studies at University of Kansas. She will share her research on unaffiliated Jews and Jewish identity. For more than 20 years half the marriages involving Jews have been intercultural. Their children are now young adults, choosing their own identities. The question of how they will relate to being Jewish is important for Jewish continuity. How does Humanistic Judaism provide a path for these young people to stay connected to Judaism?
