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 Marin community will gather at Congregation Kol Shofar to honor the memory of those who perished. Hear personal stories of survivors and a recitation of Memorial Scroll names. Bernice Steinhardt will speak about her mother, survivor Esther Nisenthal Krinitz, whose embroidered tapestries trace her memories of pre-war Poland. Part II of an exhibit of Esther’s work is on view at Congregation Kol Shofar. (View Part I at the Osher Marin JCC: marinJCC.org/remembrance).
