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.
Sukkah City on the Big Screen -- coming soon to the Castro Theatre as part of the SF Jewish Film Festival.
A project created by Rebooters Joshua Foer and Roger Bennett, Sukkah City 2010 captivated hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers with a overnight appearance of a temporary sukkah city in Union Square. Twelve winning entrants from a global architectural competition designed to reimagine the humble sukkah were displayed for two days. Featuring luminaries such as Michael Arad, Paul Goldberger and Maira Kalman, the film Sukkah City by director Jason Hutt chronicles the process of judging the entrants and the drama that ensued as the winning teams shifted from concept to construction.
