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.
Volunteer with your family to help the environment and give back to the community through this hands-on volunteer experience. PJ Cares will bring together families for fun activities with a big impact as they work together with Pushing the Envelope Farm to plant and harvest microgreens to donate to the Northern Illinois Food Bank. The Flying Fox Conservation Fund will present an interactive animal show about animal education and conservation. This program is presented in partnership with Akiba-Schechter Jewish Day School, the Tikkun Olam Volunteer Network (TOV), and PJ Library.
