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.
Teenage girls in grades 7 and 8 will discuss body image, nutrition, fitness and fashion while building self confidence and self esteem in an eight-week program called TY! True You.

TY! True You will be lead by nutritionist Jen Tuttelman, licensed social worker Katy Colthart, nurse practitioner Kaitie Lenahan, and fashion consultant Tracilee Messina, who will create a fun, relaxed and supportive atmosphere to discuss these important teenage issues. Cost for the program is $349 ($299 for JCC members). Register at bostonjcc.org or contact 617-558-6459 or email@example.com
