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.
For Clergy, Educators, Jewish Professionals & Lay Leaders: This symposium will focus on successful strategies to nurture Jewish choices for in-married and interfaith families with very young children. Models of community programming reaching parents of infants and toddlers will be presented and creative marketing opportunities for reaching unaffiliated families will be discussed. A panel of new parents will voice their needs for Jewish community connections. Symposium will integrate text study, including parenting based on Jewish values. Kosher refreshments & program materials provided.
