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 Foundation for Jewish Camp runs several programs which offer money to families who send their children to nonprofit Jewish summer camps for the first, and in some communities, second time.
The Campership Incentive Program (CIP) is a national program while the JWest Campership Program (JWest) targets those in 13 Western states. The grants are need-blind and are intended to expose children – no matter what their background – to the experience that Jewish camps offer.
A similar program introduced for summer 2010 is the Midwest Interfaith Incentive Program (MIIP) which provides need blind $1000 grants to first time campers from families where one parent is Jewish and one is not. An additional $750 will be offered if the camper returns to the same camp for a second year. It is limited to campers in the Midwest and 11 camps for its pilot year.
