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.
What does it mean to be Jewish? Is it ethnic or religious or cultural or some mix of all of them? The variety of Judaisms in the recent past and our own days testifies to the complexity of this question. Intermarriage and conversion are only two real-life applications of this basic question, which applies to all of us.
This session is part of Rabbi Chalom's yearlong Jewish Culture & Philosophy Adult Education course, focusing on Jewish Culture in the first half of the 2013-14 year and then focusing on Jewish Philosophy. You are welcome to join us for one or many classes. There is no charge...all are welcome!
