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.
Children as young as three months old can learn to swim at a new swim program at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center (333 Nahanton Street) in Newton. The Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy focuses on safety, swimming fundamentals and flexibility for parents. Children can begin lessons at any time - they don’t have to wait for a class to begin. Children progress through the program at their own pace and can take lessons year-round. Progress is captured in personal swimming journals complete with fun exercises and positive reinforcement.
The JCC is the only facility in the Boston area to offer the Swim Academy, created by four-time U.S. Olympic gold medalist (2000, 2004) Lenny Krayzelburg.
Free evaluations will be held from Sunday, September 9 through Saturday, September 15. An evaluation is needed in order to take lessons and be enrolled in the program. To set up an evaluation, call 617-558-6468 or -6469. To learn more, visit www.bostonjcc.org/lksa. To learn more about Lenny Krayzelburg, visit www.lennykswim.com
