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).
The Voices & Visions™ program elicits the power of art to communicate great Jewish ideas. The project aims to inspire conversation, instill pride, and spark creativity among diverse audiences and ages. It is co-sponsored by the PJ Library® program.
As parents, we have expectations about what our children will be like when they grow up. Sometimes it's hard to accept our children's choices, especially when they fall in love with and decide to spend their life with someone who grew up in a different faith tradition.
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.
“Chava” is the Hebrew name of the Bliblical “Eve”. The name sounds like “Hah-vah” with the accent on the first syllable. The “H” stands for the Hebrew letter “chet” (×—) which is sometimes transliterated as “ch” and is the same as the beginning of the holiday “Chanukah”. It is sometimes described as a “guttural”, but it’s made at the back of the palate, not in the throat. It is much like the Spanish “j”. But people who can’t make the sound, typically substitute the “h” sound. You will sometimes see this name spelled “Havah” with the H at the beginning because the “chet” letter is not in English, and the final “h” represents the final (silent) letter “hey” (×”) in the Hebrew name.
