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.
yes his surname is clearly Lithuanian ( at least the – “avicius”part of it ) which is my ancestry and, curious about his background as he was described as French and Jewish, I came upon your site while trying to find out more about him. My grandparents were lucky enough to leave and emigrate to the US in the early 1900′s; his evidently went to France. Your amusing remark about a Jewish battalion in the Roman army is not so far off the mark: “Lithuanian still retains many of the original features of the nominal morphology found in some ancient Indo-European languages like Sanskrit and Latin, and has therefore been the focus of much study in the area of Indo-European linguistics.” Anyway, congratulations to Michel and PS I enjoyed reading/learned some things from your site. Thanks!
