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.
The haggadah, the ritual text for the Passover seder, evokes the story of the exodus of the ancient Hebrews from slavery in Egypt. While myriad haggadot have been created from the tenth century to the present, the exhibition highlights the unique and powerful story of The Szyk Haggadah (1940). Arthur Szyk (1894–1951), a Polish Jew keenly aware of current events, fused his two passions—art and history—into a visual commentary on the striking parallels between the Passover narrative and the alarming developments unfolding in Nazi Germany in the 1930s.
Now, for the first time in over sixty years, all forty-eight original paintings from Szyk’s masterpiece will be on view together in The Contemporary Jewish Museum’s exhibition Arthur Szyk and the Art of the Haggadah. On view February 13–June 29, 2014, the exhibition features Szyk’s incredibly rendered miniatures (approx. 5 ½ x 6 ½ inches each) as well as diverse examples of important historical and contemporary haggadot.
