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.

Would you like to be able to slow down and find that quiet, still place in the routine of your daily life? This course — conveniently set up as a series of elective workshops — will give you the tools to do just that, whether you are new to or familiar with meditation and contemplative practice.
We’ve assembled a diverse faculty to help you explore the many aspects of contemplative practice. Each day, you’ll be able to choose from several 1 ½ hour workshops, some led by one teacher and some led in collaboration between two or more teachers. If you have a favorite teacher or want to delve deeply into one particular topic, you may choose to spend the whole week learning with one teacher, or deepening your knowledge in one area. Or, if you want to broaden your knowledge in several areas, feel free to learn with many teachers, about many topics.
A final workshop schedule will be available at the retreat so that you can plan your week according to what you want to learn, at your own pace. The faculty bios below include a list of topics that each teacher will cover as part of their workshops.
