Dawn Kepler has worked in programming for interfaith families since 1990. Her programs have been offered at synagogues from all Jewish movements as well as Jewish Community Centers, agencies, and day schools. She developed Building Jewish Bridges: Embracing Interfaith Families in 1998 for Lehrhaus Judaica, in response to a request from the Walter & Elise Haas Fund.
As a synagogue member, Dawn created and chaired the Outreach committee of Oakland’s Temple Sinai for fourteen years. She has chaired the Interfaith Committee of the Union for Reform Judaism, Pacific West region, has served on the Interfaith Advisory Committee for the Jewish Community Federation Endowment Fund, and on the Planning Advisory Committee of Interfaithfamily.com. She is a founding member of the Jewish Intermarriage Professionals Alliance, a national organization.
She has established, Building Jewish Bridges, a service that invites individuals and families to explore the Jewish community and to consider Jewish options. Offering workshops, ongoing couples groups, individual sessions and classes, the program reflects our richly diverse bay area community addressing the concerns of interfaith, multiracial, multiethnic and LGBT families.
