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.
Have you felt awkward, frustrated or overwhelmed in a synagogue service? Now is your chance to make yourself at home with the beautiful and inspiring liturgy of our tradition. Come join us as we unravel the structure, choreography, and meaning of the Shabbat morning service as we pray together. No previous background in Hebrew or Jewish education is necessary, just the desire to learn. At the conclusion of each session of the Learner's Minyan, we will join the Sanctuary for the last third of the service.
There is no fee for the class, but we ask that everyone purchase siddur (prayer book) Eit Ratzon, a wonderful learner's siddur that we will be using in the class. The book costs $38, and can be ordered directly at Siddur Eit Ratzon Please purchase the $38 Red siddur, not the Yellow "Original Version."
The class is offered in conjunction with the Jewish Discovery Institute, Boston’s address for people interested in finding out more about Judaism from the perspective of Conservative Judaism. We are delighted that Rabbi Jeffrey Foust will be leading this program. The program is free but registration is required. RSVP www.jewishdiscoveryinstitute.org
