Last week, we explored the idea of a Jewish home. We looked at some things you might find in a Jewish home, beginning with the essential ingredient: Jews!
Judaism is a culture as well as a religion. A Jewish home may be Jewish in many different ways, but those things will set it apart from “regular” American culture.
We used this handout to think about the ways in which our homes were Jewish: Jewish Home Inventory
This Sunday we will learn about Jewish death & mourning practices. Don’t worry – it is not the happiest topic, but it is one of the ways that Jewish tradition is both distinctive and wise. Prepare for an interesting class!
