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.
“If any city in America deserves the title of home of the Beat Generation, it is San Francisco,” says Bill Morgan, archivist and bibliographer for public figures such as Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and others. On a literary walking tour of North Beach, Morgan provides a dynamic trip back to the Beats’ legendary past.
Morgan served as Ginsberg’s personal archivist and bibliographer from the early 1980s until the author’s death of cancer in 1997. Over their twenty-year relationship, Morgan became quite close to Ginsberg and has written extensively on the Beat Generation and its key figures.
Presented in conjunction with The Allen Ginsberg Festival and the exhibition Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg at the Contemporary Jewish Museum.
