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 am a Jewish adult who was raised non-religious by non-religious parents from Jewish and Christian backgrounds. We had a christmas tree & lit a chanukah menorah. My Jewish identity was *not* formed in opposition to christmas, which many of my peers did experience. I think this gave me the freedom to fully choose Judaism as my path as an adult. I don’t have a tree in my home now, because my partner is also Jewish, but our son gets to experience christmas with my relatives and I’m glad he does. I don’t know what he will choose religiously when he is older, but I hope it will be a choice he makes freely without obligation, opposition, or fear.
