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.
I think it’s great your daughter is questioning these things at such a young age. It sounds like you feel some apprehension about the little brother/sister issue, because you have some control over that one. But what if your daughter prayed to G-d about something else, like world peace, or an A on the test, or anything else you don’t really have control over. You’d pretty much still have to give the same explanation – that your daughter should pray, and even if things don’t end up her way, it does not mean she was not being heard. And that even for grown ups things don’t always turn out the way they want. In this specific case, you might also want to ask why is it she really wants a little brother or a sister. The answer may be revealing and the issue may have another solution.
