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 was so pleased to read this and know it expresses how I feel. I have a very close friend that does good deeds but misses the spirit that was described in the article. She makes feel turned against the catholic faith. She reads that her close friends will turn against her because of her true following and that you first must learn to hate those closest to you before you can learn truly how to love no one above Jesus?? I do not recognize the true warm spirit she used to be. So sad.
How do you make out what CCC #1261 teaches us? That is: “As regards children who have died without Baptism, the Church can only entrust them to the mercy of God, as she does in her funeral rites for them. Indeed, the great mercy of God who desires that all men should be saved, and Jesus’ tenderness toward children which caused him to say: “Let the children come to me, do not hinder them,” allow us to hope that there is a way of salvation for children who have died without Baptism. All the more urgent is the Church’s call not to prevent little children coming to Christ through the gift of holy Baptism.”
I believe “Limbo” was previously suggested as the place unbaptised children go to but it is now taught that these children now enter into a state of “natural happiness” instead of enjoying the Beautific Vision.
I am glad the church has softened its position on unbaptized infants since the nuns taught me in the 50′s. Same with original sin – now guilt by association not personal guilt. But the improvements are still but polishing the turd. It’s all bronze age nonsense.
