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.
Have you ever wondered what shapes and gives meaning to the Reform Shabbat service? What is the significance of those prayers spoken every week, and the order in which they’re spoken? At Jeremiah, on this and every Shabbat, we provide an open and welcoming environment for all. During this special Friday evening service, Jeremiah becomes part of “Interfaith Shabbat,” joining with 17 other congregations to recognize the importance of interfaith families to the vibrancy of the Jewish community. We will learn about key elements of the service, such as essential prayers, scriptural readings, and music. Our rabbis and cantor will even try to answer questions about the service that you’ve always wanted to ask! If you have any questions, please contact Rabbi Segal or feel free to speak with Outreach chairs Anne and Greg Richards at 847.940.7357 or Outreach@templejeremiah.org.
