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.
Join us for an afternoon of fun family crafts, great music, candy apple decorating (and eating!), face painting, honey taste-testing, sweet round challah eating, free raffles, and helping to repair the world as we gather food from this cool urban farm to donate to surrounding area food pantries and soup kitchens.
This FREE family day is open to the whole community. All are welcome, Jewish or not! A special, warm welcome to interfaith families. GRANDPARENTS are welcome also!
This program is sponsored by Reform Jewish Chicago/ Union for Reform Judaism, in partnership with InterfaithFamily/ Chicago.
