As we study all the cultures of the world this year, children will see that all peoples and cultures have some system of spirituality. This includes all Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Atheist, and Agnostic faiths among all others. The need for family and spirituality and love is a value that binds us all.
I was absent on Wednesday, September 23rd in observance of the Jewish Holiday of Yom Kippur. As a Jew, I celebrate both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. What does your family celebrate?
Correction: The place that I go to worship for the Jewish holidays is actually a Unitarian Universalist Church. I called this a Christian Church. “It is actually not a Christian religion/church. It draws on Judeo-Christian teachings as one of six sources that inform the faith life of its congregants.”
In case you’re interested, here are three (brief!) pages from the UUA website that describe its beliefs.
