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 Mothers Circle
Mini - Sessions
Tuesdays, October 1–15 (3 weeks)
Are you raising Jewish children — but you’re not Jewish? Don’t do it alone! Have fun while learning about Jewish rituals, ethics and the how-to’s of creating a Jewish home. Responding to the needs of women who are not Jewish but raising Jewish children, the Mothers Circle program:
**Offers free education in Jewish rituals, practices and values.
**Creates a warm, supportive community of women who have
made similar choices for their families.
**Respects the participant’s choice to retain her own religious
identity while providing a Jewish family life for her children.
The Mothers Circle, a program of the Jewish Outreach Institute, is funded by The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.
