Is There Room for Jesus/Muhammed/Buddha/Brahma/etc. in Your Jewish Interfaith Home? – Online — 8 to 9 p.m.
How do you negotiate which aspects of you and your partner’s religious and/or cultural traditions you have in your home? What symbols and cultural objects from each of your traditions are present? What do we do when a practice, symbol or object is important to one partner but uncomfortable for the other? Join 18Doors’ Rabbi Alex Greenbaum and other interfaith couples for a nonjudgmental discussion of these and other common questions. Whether you’re just moving in together or you’ve been living with your partner for years, Rabbi Alex will be sure to have relevant insight and advice.
Rabbi Alex Greenbaum
Rabbi Alex Greenbaum is one of the rabbis of Beth El Congregation of the South Hills in Pittsburgh with congregational experience from Augusta, GA, Staten Island, NY, and Alpena, MI. He was ordained in 1997 by the Jewish Theological Seminary and holds a MHL from the University of Judaism, LA, and a BA in Poli-Sci/Pre-Law from Michigan State University. Originally from Detroit, he is married to Rabbi Amy Greenbaum, his associate rabbi (they were the first rabbinic couple in its 100-year history to graduate together from JTS). Together, with their three boys and one girl, they have lived in Pittsburgh since 2002. He has worked with 18Doors since 2001 and believes that there is no better place in the world that connects interfaith couples and embracing rabbis.
