We thought the holiday season might be just the time of year to walk a mile in the shoes of minority faith traditions, as they navigate both the yuletide season and the broader predominantly Christian culture around them. We’ll hear from a wide range of minority faith communities to better understand the impact in their communities, then we’ll consider how to best handle (and embrace) our diversity inside the public institutions we share. In these shared spaces how do we navigate the things parents would rather not have their kids exposed to — and respect our differences? And we’ll stretch to consider whether there is unexpected common cause between parents taking a pass on the Good News Club and those who say “no thank you” to instruction on evolution and sex ed instead.

Facilitated by Rabbi Michael Shields of Temple Israel.
