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 Renaissance Group and The Victor Center for the Prevention of Jewish Genetic Diseases are teaming up for a fun girl's night out. Join us for cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and a consult for a day to night "quick change!" There will also be a raffle drawing for a basket of goodies.
In addition to an evening of beauty, you will have the opportunity to be informed and screened for the 19 preventable genetic disease that have a 1 in 4 carrier rate in Jews. The maximum out-of-pocket cost of screenings held this evening is $25 with insurance. Please bring your ID and medical insurance card.
