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.
It was recommended to me and my fiance to take a Jewish Information Course by a Rabbi (not our officiant). The course looks really interesting and I am very interested in learning the content, however the work load seems great, with mid terms and a final exam along with written assignments. With a full time job, and trying to plan a wedding and finding a house, we’ve already have our hands full!
Does any one know of any other options in the Toronto Area?
Is this normally a pre-requisite to be married by a Rabbi?
