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.
African-American Avery grows up the adopted daughter of white Jewish lesbian parents, with two adopted brothers, one Korean and the other mixed race. When Avery becomes curious about her heritage, she contacts her birth mother, which leads to more questions than answers concerning her identity and as a result, she begins missing school and distancing herself from her home. After her behavior threatens her dreams of running college-track, she begins her journey of self-discovery while fighting to hold on to her dream.
