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.
5:00 pm Cocktail Hour (Cash Bar) / 6:00 - 9:00 pm Seder
Last year over 200 people showed up for our sold-out Philadelphia Seder, a new Gershman Y tradition that celebrates the themes and holiday of Passover through the rich contributions of the area’s artists, musicians, and dancers. This year showcases an all-new lineup including Master Storyteller and Narrator, Charlotte Blake Alston, Magician Ran'D Shine, Singer Songwriter Ross Levy and more. Our headline performer is the nationally acclaimed, local dance company Ballet X. This year, we’re moving to the Bellevue to accommodate even more people. This is one Seder you won’t want to miss.
Dinner is kosher-style, fish/vegetarian and prepared by the Bellevue’s Catering Services.
