Jennifer Kraft and I are hosting a Sukkot event in Denver this Sunday, September 30th from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm for Jewish multiracial families with kids of all ages from all over the state to “celebrate Judaism,” share our distinctive perspectives and enjoy our differences — racial and cultural.
For more information on the Sukkot celebration, or to RSVP, contact either Jen Kraft, 917-679-9915, or Ellen Goldstein, 303-885-4555.
For more information about who we are and what we are trying to do, please read this article that appeared in the Denver Post on Tuesday:
Three Denver mothers heading multiracial families are seeking to build on what it means to live in Jewish community.
The community is changing.
It’s perhaps a surprising slice of demography that shows that 16 percent of metro Denver Jewish households headed by people ages 39 and younger are multiracial.
Among all age groups, 9 percent are multiracial, according to the 2007 Metro Denver/Boulder Jewish Community Study. National organizations note that the trend is increasing through conversion, marriage and adoption.
