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.
Similar problem here, but with a twist – a massive twist, actually:
My grandfather was Jewish; my mother – his daughter obviously – was raised as Christian, as her father married a christian, and he was also often absent for months on contract work. I, the grandson,was in turn raised in chritianity. i do however recall my grandfather giving me a Star of David as a young boy though, without any explanation. Anyway, I went on to marry a muslim woman, and now regret it, as I have come to a personal conclusion that Judaism is the only valid religion for me, having done years of reading and investigation of christianity vs islam vs Judaism. I have now began to teach my kids (although I have not yet converted to Judaism) that Judaism is the religion for them. Hopefully, I will one day be in a position to convert to Judaism and I hope that my children will in turn choose Judaism. Until then, I wonder what I should refer to myself as… funny situation indeed. why do I not feel amused then?
