  • Religious School Open House

    Jewish Community Day School, 57 Stanley Ave, Watertown
    Sunday, May 7, 2017 - 9:30am to 11:00am

     We invite prospective parents to get to know our Sunday morning program. Join us at 9:30 for z’man rishon, where our religious school community comes together for a weekly assembly that explores the themes of a shacharit (morning) service, other holidays or community events. When the students go to class, there will be time to meet with the school director and hear about the outline of the program.  After that, a parent volunteer will take you on a tour of the school so you can see the learning in action. Childcare will be provided upon request.

     

    To sign up to participate, please contact our Director of Congregational Learning, Rabbi Shahar Colt - dcl [at] dorsheitzedek.org. We look forward to seeing you!

     

  • Adoption in the Jewish Community

    JCDS, 57 Stanley Street, Watertown, MA
    Sunday, May 7, 2017 - 10:20am to 11:40am

    An exciting new component of this year’s Sunday morning program is that we are hosting a series of programs open to all adults (and teens, too!) in the community.

    On this Sunday, CDT member Jenny Sartori and her colleague Jayne Guberman, co-Directors of the Adoption & Jewish Identity Project, will share their research on the complexities of Jewish identity formation for adoptees as they navigate the relationships between their birth heritage and Jewish identity. Join us for a lively discussion of some of the many issues adoptees and their families face. This program will help us expand our efforts to be a truly inclusive community.

    Jenny Sartori is Associate Director of both the Jewish Studies Program and the Humanities Center at Northeastern University. Jayne Guberman is an independent oral historian who has done consulting projects with the National Yiddish Book Center and the University of Pennsylvania’s Jewish Counterculture Oral History Project, among others. Both are adoptive mothers.
