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.
If by “a protective clamp that keeps the blood from flowing” Rabbi Levinson is referring to the Mogen(TM) clamp, then he needs to be brought up to date. The Mogen is no longer manufactured in the US because the firm that made them has gone out of business. It lost two law suits, totalling $12.7 million, after two boys had part of the heads of their penises cut off in Mogen clamps. You can confirm this with the lawyer who handled both cases, David Llewellyn of Atlanta, Georgia.
