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.
When Your Son or Daughter Falls in Love with Someone from Another Faith.
Facilitated by Dr. Paula Brody, Director, OTI
Working with parents of adult children in interfaith relationships is tremendously challenging. Loss, rejection, anxiety and disappointment are among the complex feelings that intermarriage engenders. This full day of training will provide tools for designing and leading support groups for parents of interfaith couples. Topics will include keeping communication open between parents and their adult children, fostering successful grand-parenting and building relationships with in-laws. Examples of model programming and the latest resource materials will be provided. Morning refreshments and lunch provided.
