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.
"Teenagers Who Resisted the Nazis and Their Collaborators"
presented by Mitch Braff, founder and executive director of the Jewish Partisan Foundation in San Francisco.
This engaging presentation about historic facts and stories about Jewish partisans is a "must-see-and-hear" for young adults and adults. Mr. Braff will combine short clips from films he has produced on this subject and he will discuss how teenage Jewish partisans fought and survived, exploring the ethical issues of killing, stealing, and revenge.
