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.
What messages do your marketing materials convey about your congregation/organization? What first impressions might a potential new member receive from your website, telephone message, building signage and membership materials? This morning workshop will place a special emphasis on marketing to new members, especially families with young children and interfaith families. Registrants are requested to bring membership packets, print marketing materials, and lap-tops for online website viewing.
Interactive discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Paula Brody, Director, Outreach Training Institute with Judith Emanuel, Executive Director, Temple Emanu-El, Marblehead, MA, Former President, MATSA.
