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.
You are invited to bring your family and friends to our annual Passover Pot Luck Seder on Tuesday, March 30 at 6:30 PM. It will be lead by Rabbi Dawn Rose, so it will feature lots of great singing. She has promised that it will be fun, meaningful and exciting. We encourage families to bring their children. Also, we welcome our friends from the community.
Each family is requested to bring candle holders, and two of the following food items – a main dish, a salad or vegetable, and dessert. Please make enough to serve 8 to 10 people. Everyone will want a taste. Please let us know what you plan to bring when you make your reservation. There is a charge for members of $3 per person or $10 per family. The non-member charge is $5 per person or $18 per family.
Because this is a pot luck meal and our food will be prepared in many kitchens, the meal will not be strictly kosher for Passover, by traditional standards. However, please prepare all food according to our Passover guide-lines. We don’t require the use of Passover pots, pans, and dishes but, we do request that you not bring pork, shellfish, or shrimp. Bread, crackers, pasta, cakes, pies, and pizza, with flour or cookie-crumb crusts are not appropriate for our Passover Seder. We follow Ashkenazic rules for what foods to bring so as to be welcoming to all traditions. We ask you not to bring rice, millet, corn and legumes (like peas, beans, etc.).
