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.
Applications are now being accepted for B’naiture, our two-year program for ages 11–13 that starts in the fall.
B'naiture is a two-year, experiential program for girls and boys that uses nature as a vehicle to explore the transition from childhood to adolescence. B'naiture is forging a new Jewish pathway for nature and soul-centric B’nai Mitzvah. The journey begins when entering 6th grade (generally age 11).
This groundbreaking program weaves Jewish teachings, story, and song with personal challenges, outdoor skills, non-parental mentorship, peer group community building, and nature awareness activities to provide an embodied way for youth to explore coming-of-age.
All children are welcome to apply for B'naiture. We welcome Jews, non-Jews, interfaith families, LGBTQ families and children, and people of color.
