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.
West Marin Faith based organizations come together to in community to celebrate Thanksgiving.
This gathering is one of the highlights of the year when we get together with our neighbors from St. Cecilia and St. Rita Catholic parishes, San Geronimo Community Prebyterian Church and Wakan to offer our thanks and appreciation for our diversity and the community in which we live. It is a rich musical hour-long service with offerings from each of our tradtions folowed by refreshments provided by Gan HaLev. It is a time to meet with our friends and neighbors, to develop interfaith understanding and express the values that we share. The event is also a fund-raisier for the Community Center's Emergency Food Pantry. Everyone is invited whether or not they are members of the congregations who are offering the service.
We are delighted that once again Rabbi Elisheva Salamo will be leading Gan HaLev's portion of this year's service. Our children will have a major role.
