Mothers Circle

Mother's Circle

Are you raising Jewish children… but you’re not Jewish? Don’t do it alone!

The Mothers Circle welcomes women of all faiths, heritages and family constellations who are raising Jewish children.

The Mothers Circle is a free education and support program for women of other religious backgrounds seeking to raise Jewish children within the context of an interfaith marriage or a committed relationship. It provides a warm and welcoming environment that encourages non-Jewish moms to talk with one another and navigate life as a mother in a Jewish family. The Mothers Circle provides support to the entire extended family as well as an alumni group that meets frequently.

“The Mothers Circle has brought me closer to my family … built a cohesion and togetherness. We no longer fear feeling like ‘outsiders.’ The Mothers Circle is a framework for a diverse, interesting, and supportive Jewish community.” – Rachael, Mothers Circle participant
