Latin Jewish Festival: Celebrating all multiethnic families! April 30, 3-6pm PT; $45/family; Urban Adamah, Berkeley


The purpose of this research is to find out what strategies and program models could best support language learning and positive ethnic identity formation among Latinx Jewish families with children in the Bay Area. This study is aimed at exploring how Latinx Jewish families in the Bay navigate their multicultural, multilingual, racial, and intersectional identities as they make educational and community-engagement choices for their children. The study seeks to understand these families’ goals, desires, and visions for their children regarding language and culture, the challenges they face, and the community opportunities and personal or family assets that help them realize their family language and culture goals.  



Olamim held a virtual event to present their research findings on February 16, 2023.
