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.
Join us for our modern spin on the 600-year-old Rosh Hashanah ritual called Tashlique. This custom of ridding ourselves of all our bad vuggum from the previous year and getting a fresh start for the new one is traditionally enacted by tossing bread into the ocean.
For the last five years, we have reinvented this ritual, included live music, and even rebooted the spelling of the ritual (Tashlich --> Tashlique) to give it a fresh twist.
Join us by the shore at Ocean Beach for a brief, engaging ritual and joyful noise accompaniment from shofar (ram’s horn) blowers and bag pipers, Ralph Carney and members of the SF Jazz Mafia and the Ministers of Sound of the Saint John Will-I-Am Coltrane African Orthodox Church.
With S'mores and Rocky's Fry Bread as our sweet.
Bring stale bread to share and please bring your shofar!
In partnership with Reboot, GET FED (a program of the SFJCF), The Kitchen, InterfaithFamily/Bay Area, and Keshet.
Made possible with the support of the Koret Foundation.
