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.
This special Family Jamboree celebrates the world of Arnold Lobel and all of Lobel’s animal friends including Frog, Toad, Owl, and more. Families can listen to San Francisco Public Librarians read classic Lobel books at 12pm, 1pm, and 2:30pm, surrounded by his original artwork in the exhibition Frog and Toad and the World of Arnold Lobel. Then join local author Bob Barner (Bugs, Bugs, Bugs) while he reads, draws, and plays the ukelele at 12pm. At 12:15pm, the Bug Family Band gives everyone a chance to wiggle at a joyful folk rock show. After, listen to local author Angela Dominguez as she tells the tale of a bird named Hugo, who overcomes his fear of flight in her book Let’s Go Hugo, and create clay creatures in the art studio from 1–3pm.
