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.
The Miami-Dade Introduction to Judaism Course provides an opportunity to learn about Jewish history, traditions, holidays and life cycle ceremonies. Participants will gain comfort and familiarity with the symbols, liturgy, music, traditions and Hebrew blessings that accompany Jewish celebrations in the home and synagogue. Reform rabbis and educators teach this in-depth course. Introduction to Judaism is designed for individuals and couples wishing to explore Judaism, as well as for those individuals considering becoming Jewish. Partners in interfaith relationships are encouraged to enroll together. Individuals are welcome to bring a friend or family member to support their learning at no additional charge. The 16-week course is offered two times per year. The Fall 2012 Introduction to Judaism Course will be held on WEDNESDAY nights from August 29 - December 12, 2012 and the Spring 2013 Introduction to Judaism Course will be held on WEDNESDAY nights from January 23 - May 8, 2013.
To supplement the class experience, each student is asked to work with a sponsoring rabbi from a local Reform synagogue. If you need help finding a sponsoring rabbi, please call Linda Levin at 212.452.6715, and she will be happy to recommend someone near where you live or work.
