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.
It is a shame that the Dr. could not be more sensitive to your needs at that moment. The sad thing is you should have answered proudly yes I am Jewish because my father is Jewish and the reform movement adopted to accept patriarchal lineage in 1996.
Dr X is a miserable excuse for a doctor, a man and a Jew and a mohel. I apologise to Laurel (and all the other Laurels out there) that Doctor X (and all who think and act like him) seemingly continue to decide for the entire Jewish world who is or isn’t a Jew. Judaism would a lot better off with more Laurel Snyders and many less Dr Xs.
