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.
Maximizing Your Marketing Skills to Increase the Warmth of Your Welcome.
Interactive discussion facilitated by Dr. Paula Brody.
What message do you want your marketing materials to convey about your congregation/organization? Are your membership materials, program brochures and website pages welcoming and inclusive? What first impressions might a potential new member have from your website, your phone message or your building’s signage? What key welcoming and engagement opportunities are you missing?
This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity to assess your marketing materials and learn from peer organizations. Registrants are requested to bring lap-tops and all written and on-line marketing materials including a current congregational/organizational membership packet. Refreshments provided.
Offered in collaboration with Synagogue Council of Massachusetts.
