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.
Register to host a Shabbat meal--either Friday night, or Saturday afternoon--and NEXT will provide a slew of resources, a Shabbox, and funds to cover the cost of food. You can even host a potluck-style meal, and we'll help fund your main dish. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we're teaming up with Sharsheret to bring you NEXT/ Sharsheret Pink Shabbat®. Bring your friends together Oct. 25-26 to "think pink," and we'll provide great resources and up to $14/head to help you cover the cost of food for up to 16 guests.
