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.
This is wonderful! I was just talking to my friend who is attending pre-cana classes with her fiance and I began to wonder why the Jewish community does not have something similar. I am Jewish and my fiance is Christian. I would love to attend these classes. I think it’s important and it sounds like fun! Do you know of any such classes in Long Island, NY?
Contact your jewish community center. I am taking a counseling class for interfaith relationships there. I truly recommend it as it has been interesting in helping my boyfriend and I realize whether we can compromise on the religion aspect before an engagement.
Yes, InterfaithFamily/Philadelphia will be offering a similar program in 2013. There is also counseling provided by Jewish Children and Family Service. If you need more information, contact me at email@example.com.
