Facing Family Diversity in Our School

By Dee Noonberg

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1997

The increase in diversity within the structure of the Jewish family has prompted Jewish agencies, synagogues, and schools to examine their attitudes and responses to members of non-traditional families in order to foster the feelings of acceptance and belonging that strengthen the family and its Jewish identity. This article addresses three areas of diversity, separation and divorce, intermarriage, and adoptionâ??and recommends ways that Jewish schools can handle sensitively the needs of non-traditional families. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.73 no.4, Summer 1997.
