Our updated booklet, Weddings For The Interfaith Couple, walks you through all of the traditions for the big day, starting with two to think about in advance (choosing a wedding contract known as a ketubah and topics to consider when meeting with your wedding officiant).
Rabbi Mychal will be leading us in a discussion of interfaith relationships throughout Jewish history and the present challenges and opportunities they pose. This discussion will provide a foundation for the second part of the series in which we will explore the many realities of interfaith relationships, including challenges we have faced and our varied approaches to our own interfaith experiences.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Thanks for sharing the article. After reading it, I thought of this: “Frontline, From Jesus to Christ…The First Christians” at PBS.org here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/religion/
I think you, your daughter, and your husband might gain a great deal from this series as it delves into the cultural, religious, and political elements that Judaism faced 2,000 years ago under hegemony of Roman Empire – and how Christianity broke and moved away from Judaism, morphing into a dominant social, political, and religious force under Constantine. The 4 parts to this series are brilliant, well-produced, and instructive on many levels. I think it will help your daughter understand the cultural nuances between the proponents of both Judaism and Christianity.
