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.
With Rabbi Ed Feinstein
The Shoah and the rebirth of Israel took place during a single generation. Discuss how generations deal with such a great catastrophe and miraculous redemption respectively. Consider how we make sense of the Jewish condition during times of upheaval and what our generation’s narrative will be. Explore how we begin to understand Jewish life again after the ancient questions of Jewish faith and identity have been recast in radical new forms by the events of our generation.
