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.
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL ANSWER TO HER. I TOO AM BOTH AND AM TORN FROM TIME TO TIME EXCEPT I GREW UP WITH GODPARENTS AND FRIENDS WHO WERE ALL JEWISH AO I CELEBRATED MANY JEWISH HOLIDAYS STILL EAT ALL THE FOOD. HATE PORK EXCEPT SOME OF MY FRIENS WOULD SLIP IT IN SOMETIME. BUT I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION I HONOR BOTH THE CATHOLIC FAITH AND THE JEWISH FAITH AND I KNOW SOMWDAY I WILL BE WITH BOTH MY DEAR FRIENS OF THE JEWISH FAITH AND MY CATHOLIC ONES. I KNOW THIS TO BE RIGHT AND I KNOW GOD WOULD NOT EVER TURN ON HIS OWN PEOPLE. DENISE PS I EVEN FOUND OUT MY MOTHERS AUNT WAS JEWISH AND ESCAPED TO COME TO AMERICA DURING THE WAR AND CONVERTED TO LIVE. I WONDER WHY SHE NEVER TOLD ME BUT WAS ALWAYS SURE THAT I KNEW BOTH FAITHS? MY FATHER WAS CATHOLIC MY MOTHER THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. MY AUNT TOLD ME THE TRUTH AND SAID HER AUNT ESCAPED AND FEARED SO UCH SHE NEVER CONVERTED BACK WHEN SHE GOT TO USA. A PITY I HOPE SHE PRACTICED HER JUDISUM AT HOME IN PRIVATE…..
