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 San Francisco Jewish Film Festival is a renowned three-week summer Festival, screening in four Bay Area venues, featuring the highest quality Jewish films from around the world. As the first of more than 100 Jewish film festivals worldwide, and still the largest, with some 30,000 attendees. SFJFF is an influential showcase bringing together filmmakers and audiences to celebrate Jewish cinema and explore its new frontiers.
SFJFF today stands firmly and proudly on years of impressive and hard-earned accomplishments.
We are the first and largest Jewish film festival in the world.
We’ve exhibited 1,300 films over 32 years.
The films presented by SFJFF make up a very special and unique collection, one that is unlike any other, because they celebrate both independence and community. The collection involves those who make the films, those who curate and present them, volunteers, members, dedicated sponsors and donors, and lively audiences who get involved and respond. These people represent many independent voices, and who they are safeguards SFJFF’s independent history, present, and future.
