Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.
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.
An increasing number of rabbis will officiate at interfaith weddings. (Keep in mind that this article was written in 1999.)
To find a rabbi in Boston (or anywhere else), use our free Jewish Clergy Referral Service by filling out the form at http://www.interfaithfamily.com/findarabbi. We have over 600 on our list in the US and Canada.
interesting article, and yet most people aren’t aware of it.
earlier this year, i went to a wedding where the bride was Jewish and the groom wasn’t. they had a friend perform the ceremony, and while there wasn’t much mention of religion the presence of the chuppah, wine sipping, and glass breaking were there. they had a very meaningful ceremony with a small crowd, and i only wish more couples did the same instead of focusing on the materialistic side of weddings.
i hope to do something like what the article mentions if i ever get married (i’m 31 and although i’ve had a few long relationships, none were interested in marriage), regardless of whether the person is Jewish or not.
