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.
Jennifer, I am in a similar spot, and I wonder what we will do when the parents-in-law are gone or unable to host Christmas in their own home due to illness or old age. Will we mourn what has become, tacitly, slowly, our own holiday and tradition? Or will we end up continuing it in our own homes? Already I find myself passing by the fir trees in the market, inhaling deeply and asking myself if I will eventually buy one for myself. At this point, is it even about our husbands anymore?
