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.
Jewish Peoplehood - its complex origins, its implications and how it might be sustained. This is an issue of wide concern in the Jewish community today as the concept of a "Jewish collective" appears at odds with the contemporary ethos of intense individualism.
Through a series of video lectures, text study, and lively group discussion, we are again pleased to bring the world-renowned faculty of the Shalom Hartman Institute into the Kesher Israel community this year.
