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.
Shavuot ushers in the summer season with a harvest celebration of the bikkurim (“first fruits of the season”). This year Wilderness Torah invites you to join us for our first-ever daylong Shavuot First Fruits Festival and BBQ for adults and children of all ages!
We will gather as a community to deepen our connections to nature, learn new skills, and explore shmita, an ancient teaching on how we can build ecologically and culturally regenerative community today. See our website for more on shmita and the exciting conversations happening around it across the Jewish world.
We’ll also celebrate OUR First Fruits — bring the fresh food from your gardens, news of your new job, child, or any other new transitions, changes, or accomplishments in your life worth celebrating in community.
