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.
What does InterfaithFamily have to offer you? Find out at our Hanukat HaBayit (as we dedicate our new "home"). We have 18 booklets, classes, workshops, and more to support your interfaith families.
We're celebrating our first 8 months by putting up a mezuzah, welcoming the community and sharing some words of wisdom.
We hope you'll join us at our new office space for an open house, a glass of wine, a small nosh, and of course shmoozing! Chat with us about our training opportunities for staff and lay people.
(The mezuzah hanging will be at 6:30pm & kosher dietary laws will be observed.)
