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 Boston Jewish Film Festival REELAbilitiesBOSTON presents Mabul (Flood) on Monday, February 4 at 6:30pm at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center (333 Nahanton Street) in Newton.
Mabul (2011, Hebrew with English subtitles) is the story of Yoni whose autistic older brother Tomer returns home as Yoni prepares for his Bar Mitzvah. Tomer’s return forces the already unhappy family to turn their attention to Tomer’s challenging presence. Ultimately, it is Tomer who is the most centered one, bringing his wildly dysfunctional family together in this acclaimed Israeli feature nominated for six Israeli Oscars. The film is directed by Guy Nattiv.
The Jewish Community Centers of Greater Boston and the Combined Jewish Philanthropies Disabilities Committee will host a reception and talk-back after the film. No cost to attend. Open to all. Interfaith families/individuals welcome. RSVP by January 28 by contacting email@example.com.
