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.
Making Choices Around the Winter Holidays
A Dinner and Discussion for Interfaith Families Sponsored by the Interfaith Outreach Committee
The winter holiday season can be a wonderful but challenging time of year, especially for interfaith families. We’ll join together for a potluck dinner and an open conversation about how we make choices around Chanukah and Christmas. We’ll have the opportunity to share questions, challenges, and ideas for how to approach the holidays and make the season meaningful and joyful for the whole family.
The discussion will be led by Rabbi Sarah, the staff liaison to the Interfaith Outreach Committee and a product of an interfaith family herself.
We’ll provide the main dish; please bring a side or salad to share. Childcare will be provided.
After dinner, all are invited to attend Shabbat services, featuring our fantastic Tizmoret band and story time for children during the sermon with librarian Diane Rauchwerger.
RSVP by Wednesday, October 30 with the number of adults and children who will attend.
