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.
Great article. However from a respecting and knowing the traditions of the other, a unity candle is not a “Christian” tradition. It is a Hollywood tradition that started with some American soap opera in the 70s or 80s. A unity candle is not a Christian tradition, it is a secular tradition.
But when the author wrote that unity candles are “taken from the Christian tradition,” I don’t think a religious tradition was meant. Rather, that some Christian couples include the use of a unity candle in their ceremony, while it is largely unknown (and unseen) at Jewish weddings.
