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.
The Religious School at Congregation Kneseth Israel is part of a diverse Jewish community. Families come from many geographic areas and many religious traditions from Orthodox to Reform and everything in between. Together we have created a school that honors individual differences. With a team approach of the rabbi, staff, parents, and students, we create an experience which meets each person where she or he is and helps them grow spiritually gaining pride in Judaism and in our people. The CKI Religious School offers an integrated curriculum that builds year after year and includes Hebrew, Prayer, Holidays, Bible, History, Values, and Life Cycle Events.
Please join us on Wednesday August 14, 2013 (7-9 PM) and Sunday August 18, 2013 (10 AM to Noon).
