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.
As the products of interfaith families, we have unique stories to tell. Join writer Rebecca Spence for a four-week workshop in which we’ll give voice to our experience. Through weekly discussions and creative writing exercises, we’ll explore the themes and narrative threads that arise when we allow ourselves the space. Born to an interfaith family herself, Rebecca is keenly aware of the particular sensitivities and conflicts that can arise within ourselves, as well as in our families and Jewish communities, when we negotiate identity. The story-telling process itself, regardless of experience level as a writer, can be healing, and sometimes cathartic. By the end of the workshop, you can expect to have completed a solid draft of your story.
