InterfaithFamily.com (http://www.InterfaithFamily.com), the leading provider of content by and about intermarried families, can offer advice to the more than one million U.S. interfaith families on how to make the Jewish High Holidays more meaningful. This year, the Jewish High Holidays start the evening of Sept. 15 with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and run through Oct. 6 with Hoshana Rabbah, the seventh day of Sukkot, which marks the thematic end of the High Holiday period.
"During the High Holidays families get together to celebrate the Jewish New Year and to atone during Yom Kippur. And while many interfaith families enjoy family gatherings at this time, any religious holiday accentuates the fact of the religious differences in the family. This holiday season can be especially challenging for interfaith families because partners and extended family may not be familiar with the prayers, traditions and meaning of the holiday," said Edmund Case, publisher, InterfaithFamily.com. "Based on our experts and on thousands of our members, we have compiled advice for adding meaning and making the High Holidays more enjoyable for interfaith families."
