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.
Dan, it is beautifully written from your heart. I do believe that marriages, regardless of who are in the relationship, bring a lot of challenges to the table. But you are right; trust in the relationship is paramount. See you soon.
Congratulations on the union between a Sikh and Jew, but your notion of our Great Sikh religion is totally wrong, a unique religion, no relation in any way to most religions of the world. Read our Gurbani at http://www.srigranth.org
Sikhi does not come from other religions. We did not learn of God from Muslims etc. I see that your wife has pretty much given in to compromise. How do the children even identify with sikhi??? This is what I’m afraid of, that at the end of the day you’re pretty much going to have to pick one faith over the other, at least for the most part.
