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.
Refusing to attend a wedding and knowingly showing disrespect for life affirming choices of their son and his partner is not a manifestation of belief but an exhibition of intolerance, insensitivity and ignorance.
What is actually “an exhibition of intolerance, insensitivity and ignorance” is this commenters inability to understand a perspective different than his own. What I see are parents and children attempting to work within the framework of each ones legitimate belief structure to find an acceptable solution. To suggest that someone is intolerant or ignorant simply because their faith is different than your shows your deficiency not theirs.
