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.
Parents and teens are invited to learn about The Diller Teen Fellowship, a national leadership program for 10th and 11th grade students, at a Taste of Diller Teen Fellows program on Sunday, April 11, from 5:00-7:00pm at the JCC.
Twenty Boston area teens will be selected to become Diller Teen Fellows. Fellows will spend a year gaining insights into Jewish identity, experiencing a cultural exchange with Israeli teens, creating and leading others in service learning projects, and making friendships that will last a lifetime.
The Fellowship entails some Sunday workshops, three Shabbat/weekend retreats, a two-week trip to Israel, and a 10-day Boston peer-to-peer exchange with Israeli teen leaders. Teens from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
