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 dynamic 2013-2014 JconnecT Sunday Morning Live will be beginning on October 6th.
Students can sign up for both classes --Hip Hop Hebraics for modern, conversational Hebrew and Contemporary Jewish Issues -- or just one.
The students meet online with their peers to interact, learn, explore and express their own ideas as they learn concepts relating to Judaism and Israel.
This program is great for kids who live in an area where there are no Jewish congregational schools, who don't integrate into an existing religious school framework or who want a more meaningful Hebrew School experience than what is available in their local community.
Students can join the first JconnecT class for free on October 6th to get an overview of the program and decide whether it's right for them. The classes are taught by English-speaking teachers who are based in Israel.
The program includes two Shabbatonim at the Margolin Hebrew Academy in Memphis where the students can meet each other and experience a Shabbat with their peers.
Interested parents, students and other community members are welcome to write to JconnecT for more information. email@example.com
The JconnecT program has been featured in a number of blogposts including in the Jewish military Jews in Green and in the JETS Jerusalem EdTech Solutions blogs.
