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.
Comedy Cabaret, a night of comedy featuring three well-known stand-up comics – Marion Grodin, Jodie Wasserman and Scott Blakeman - will take place at the Leventhal-Sidman JCC in Newton on Saturday, January 14 at 8pm.
Marion Grodin, daughter of actor Charles Grodin, has appeared on The Joy Behar Show, NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and ABC’s The View. She has shared the stage with Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle and Robin Williams. Jodie Wasserman has appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, BET’s Comic View, plus Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and Comic Remix.
Blakeman is “the top political comedian working in New York today,” says NBC. He was featured on MSNBC’s live coverage of the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner. He performed his one-man show Liberal Jew last summer on Martha’s Vineyard.
