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 Greater Chicago Jewish Festival expresses the heart and soul of Jewish Chicago. For one single day it intertwines the sounds, sights and smells of Jewish culture and brings together every facet of the Jewish community; young and old, singles and families, regardless of their religious practices and political commitments. It is a day of celebration and tolerance in which we gather to celebrate Jewish identity and share Jewish culture with others. I invite you to come and be part of our "town square of Jewish Chicago" and enjoy the Festival with family and friends.
