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.
Two literary legends take the stage to delve into the myth and man of Allen Ginsberg and the legacy of the Beat Generation. Bill Morgan (I Celebrate Myself: The Somewhat Private Life of Allen Ginsberg and The Beat Generation in San Francisco) talks with David Meltzer (San Francisco Beats: Talking with the Poets and David’s Copy: The Selected Poems of David Meltzer). CJM Manager of Public Programs Gravity Goldberg will moderate the conversation.
Presented in conjunction with The Allen Ginsberg Festival and the exhibition Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg at the Contemporary Jewish Museum.
