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.
What a great article. As a practicing reform Jew engaged to a Christian, I can really related. Last year, Passover overlapped with Easter. My experience was almost the reverse of the one mentioned in your story. I had to explain to my Fiance’s family why I wasn’t eating many of the food they prepared for Easter – the ham and many of the side dishes were not kosher. I still don’t think they quite get it, but my fiance has been very supportive. Let’s just say that the next time they overlap, I will probably be eating at home before the big family meal.
