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.
Esther and King Ahashverosh will be married Saturday evening , February 27. The evening will start with a reading of their love story (megillah) at 7pm and will continue with an ADULTS ONLY wedding reception following the ceremony (booze, fun, antics, etc.) Wedding and reception will be held at Temple Beth El of South Orange County in Aliso Viejo. Rabbis Peter Levi and Heather Miller will officiate at this Spring’s sure-to-be hottest wedding.
The bride will wear Wera Vang (sold only on Garment District sidewalks & vans) and will be escorted down the aisle by her Uncle, Mordecai, who recently saved the Jews from destruction.
The bridegroom serves as King of Persia and will wear traditional royal garb and the family jewels.
The couple met in Shushan when the King was looking to fill the job vacancy created by Vashti.
Wedding attendees are requested to join in the simcha by wearing old bridesmaids’ dresses or coming as famous couples. (The king’s wedding coordinator suggests Romeo/Juliet,
Barak/Michelle, Bill/Hillary, Kermit/Miss Piggy, and
Jon/Kate as examples.)
on Sunday, Feb 28!
Fun for the whole family!
