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.
This month's topic is "The Enlightenment and the Jews." It is the eighth class in the 10-part series: Reclaiming Jewish History. This month we will feature a video talk by Lois Dubin, Associate Professor of Religion and Biblical Literature at Smith College. With an M.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard University Dubin specializes in post-Biblical Jewish history and thought. All the lectures in the video series are part of the International Institute of Secular Humanistic Judaism's Colloquium in 1997. Even if you missed the previous classes you can still attend this one. Admission is free and no texts are required. Each session consists of an exciting video lecture by a prominent Judaic scholar from a major university followed by a question-and-answer period.
