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.
HUNGER: A Global Problem - A Local Challenge - What is Our Responsibility?
1.4 million New Yorkers live in homes without enough to eat. Worldwide, there are over 1 billion people who are hungry.
What are the immediate challenges both locally and around the globe? What are the answers, from local soup kitchens and food pantries to long-term sustainable solutions?
Representatives of organizations that are working to address this major social problem will present information about their work and teach us what can be done about it. What can we do ourselves and how can we formulate an action plan as a congregation?
It is not your duty to complete the task, but nor are you free to desist from it. (Rabbi Tarfon, Pirke Avot, 2:21)
