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.
Thank you for the fantastic suggestions for nurturing the Jewish identity of grandchildren in interfaith families! I would also like to suggest the book Twenty Things for Grandparents of Interfaith Grandchildren to Do (and Not Do) to Nurture Jewish Identity in Their Grandchildren by Rabbi Kerry Olitzky and Paul Golin of the Jewish Outreach Institute.
The Jewish Outreach Institute offers the Grandparents Circle program to give grandparents the tools they need to nurture the Jewish identities of grandchildren in interfaith homes. This program includes a national listserve, a five-session course available in many communities in the United States and Canada, and a website. To learn more about how the Jewish Outreach Institute supports grandparents of grandchildren in interfaith homes, visit the Grandparents Circle website at http://www.grandparentscircle.org.
