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.
I have been asked to write a blog for a play to be presented to the Jewish community in Boston. This is our chance to educate the Jewish community about how they and the rabbis might be helpful to us. I would like to know if any of you talked with your rabbis before your children married "out", and/or before the bris or naming.
What did the rabbis say that was helpful and what did they say that was not? What did other community members say that was useful and what did they say that was not?
Responses will be kept anonymous. (You can post them here, message me through my user account, or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org who will forward them to me.)
As I said, I want to use this opportunity to let people know of some of the unnecessary hurts our community gives to intermarried families and to educate them about what would be useful.
