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.

About Constance Snow:
Constance Snow (née Hopkins) was born in 1606 in Hursley, Hampshire, England. When she was three, her father, Stephen Hopkins, left the family to travel to the colony of Jamestown on the ship Sea Venture. On the way, the ship was caught in a hurricano and wrecked on the island of Bermuda. After some nine or ten months, the castaways were able to make their way to Jamestown, where they found the colony to be in terrible straights. After surviving some years in Jamestown, Stephen Hopkins was able to make his way back to England, where he was reunited with Constance, and her younger brother Giles.
In 1620, at the age of 14, Constance sailed to the New World with her family on the ship Mayflower. Along the way her stepmother, Elizabeth Hopkins, was delivered of a baby boy, Oceanus. The early years in Plimoth Colony were rough, but after a few years, Constance met and married her beshert, Nicholas Snow.
