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.
Gan HaLev, the Jewish Congregation in the San Geronimo Valley will be cosponsoring an Interfaith Thanksgiving Service. This is the 8th year that religious congregations in this West Marin community have come together for this annual celebration. This year our theme is music and we will be celebrating our gratitude for music from our various religious traditions. In addition to Gan HaLev, the event is cosponsored by the San Geronimo Community Presbyterian Church in San Geronimo and by St. Cecilia and St. Mary parishes in Lagunitas and Nicasio. This year’s host is St. Cecilia Catholic Church in Lagunitas. The event begins at 4pm. Everyone is invited regardless of any religious affiliation. The event is also an occasion for people to make donations to support the San Geronimo Valley Community Center’s Emergency Food Pantry Thanksgiving Food Distribution Program. Each year the Community Center distributes turkeys and thanksgiving food boxes to 200 needy families in our community.
