This is the Half-Jewish Network message board. Please feel free to leave a comment, suggestion, idea or question. We see and respond to all messages that are left on this page.
Here is some information about our email Half-Jewish Network Newsletter and our Message Board that will make it easier to use them:
1. SUBSCRIBING TO FREE MONTHLY EMAIL NEWSLETTER:
If you want to stay in touch with us, please sign up to receive our monthly email newsletter, using the “Email Subscription” box in the upper right hand corner of this web page.

2. SUBSCRIBING TO THE FREE MESSAGE BOARD:
If you would also like a second subscription to see any replies that people make to your message or to see messages from other half-Jewish people who post in the future, just post a comment on “About/Message Board” below.
You then will see a check box under your comment asking “Notify me of follow-up comments via email.” Just check that box.
By doing this, you can socialize with, support and advise other half-Jewish people from all over the world as they contact our group.
Now here are some guidelines about posting on the message board –
3. MESSAGE BOARD GUIDELINES:
We have separate guidelines for half-Jewish people and people who are not half-Jewish.
Half-Jewish People: Adult children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and other descendants of intermarriage — we ask you to show courtesy and respect for other commenters’ multiple viewpoints and lifestyles.
The message board is reserved for postings by people who are half-Jewish. People who are not half-Jewish — members of interfaith couples who are born Jews, Christians and members of other faith-based cultures, outreach professionals, researchers, media, writers, journalists, reporters and people selling commercial products — see our “People Who Are Not Half-Jewish” guidelines below.
We ask half-Jewish people who email the Half-Jewish Network privately that you show courtesy and respect in your email for our website volunteers — including words like “please” and “thank you” in emails are helpful to us.
Be aware that your first comment will probably be held for moderation. If your comment goes to moderation, it should be approved within 24 to 72 hours. Please keep in mind that the website and message board are maintained by volunteers, so please be patient.
We will remove any postings that violate our guidelines. Thank you for respecting our guidelines! It is much appreciated!
People Who Are Not Half-Jewish: People who are not half-Jewish — members of interfaith couples who are born Jews, Christians and members of other faith-based cultures, outreach professionals, researchers, media, writers, journalists, reporters and people selling commercial products — please do not post on our message board.
Instead, please go to our “About/Contact/Leaders” page and connect with us through the email address listed there.
People who are not half-Jewish are also welcome to subscribe to our monthly email newsletter.
The reason that we ask that only half-Jewish people post on our message board is that we try to maintain our message board solely for half-Jewish peoples’ questions, stories and issues. Our message board is one of the few spaces on the Internet entirely devoted to the needs of half-Jewish people in a respectful manner.
Questions from people who are not half-Jewish are answered privately by contacting us through our email address shown on our “About/Contact/Leaders” page. If we cannot answer your questions, or we are not the correct group to deal with them, we may refer you to another group with appropriate resources.
We ask people who are not half-Jewish that if you email the Half-Jewish Network privately, please show courtesy and respect in your email for our website volunteers — including words like “please” and “thank you” in emails are helpful to us.
Thank you for respecting our guidelines! They are intended to make life easier for all of us.
