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.
Please join us for a humanistic celebration of Purim and a Judaica auction. Included in the program is a display and sale of prints by Italian Jewish artists, a silent auction of Judaica from Italy and a special interactive reading of the megillah, Humanist style under the leadership of Rabbi Frank Tamburello.
Participants are invited to come in costume and masks. They are also asked to bring canned or non perishable packaged food for the food drive. This is in the tradition of Shalach Monos.
In addition to music and joyful singing, light refreshments will be served. There is no charge but donations are welcome. This event is open to attendees of all ages!
