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.
When Julie Greenberg was in her mid twenties, a single woman studying to be a rabbi, she wondered how she would create a family. This book tells the story of Greenberg's journey into spirited motherhood, and of how she parented her five children within a web of relationships that included donor dads, a gay male parenting partner, birth parents, multiracial children, women lovers, as well as her loving family of origin. Just Parenting draws on Greenberg's years of experience as a Rabbi, family therapist and activist, weaving together memoir and of practical how-to. Greenberg connects big issues such as race, class and peace, with micro moments of parenting such as dinner table squabbles. Childcare available at a $5-$10 sliding scale upon RSVP.
