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 married couples where one partner is Jewish. The program teaches about Judaism and helps couples find ways to strengthen Judaism in their homes and their lives. The program will focus on experiential workshops and seminars, hiking and community as participants explore what Judaism means in their lives and in the lives of their families.
Only for married couples; no children on the program (though future programs may include children)
The program will be based in Tzfat at the Livnot campus and will include hiking and other travel in Israel.
The program’s cost is $2400 per couple. This does not include plane fare. We are looking into the possibility of financial assistance to reduce the cost but we won’t know about that possibility for awhile.
