"Stepping Stones" is a 2-year educational program designed to build Jewish identification and self-esteem in children of unaffiliated interfaith families. Through weekly sessions, children and their parents are exposed to elements of basic Judaism in an atmosphere of caring, sensitivity, and warmth. Emphasis is placed on experiential activities, values clarification, parental involvement, and the development of a "Stepping Stones" community. In the coming year, the program will be replicated in six communities across the country.
