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.
Parents of children ages 6-9 months will focus on play time for baby while incorporating education and support for the parent/caregiver. Led by a former Isis Parenting Instructor, regular routines with song, baby sign language, parachute play and story time are combined with varied weekly activities that highlight development. Each baby’s unique pace is considered and caregivers gain insights as to how their baby learns. The babies’ self confidence and curiosity are fostered as caregivers learn about child development while connecting with others. This 10 week class costs $165 and is held the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center (333 Nahanton Street) in Newton. Multiple offerings: Wednesdays, March 26-June 4 from 11:30am-12:30pm and Saturdays, March 29-June 7 from 11:30am-12:30-pm. Register at www.bostonjcc.org/earlyparenting.
