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.
This comedy of manners, screening in its U.S. Premiere, turns on Jill, a single, 30-something Jewish tax preparer in contemporary Berlin who falls for Mark, a landscape architect, and a nice German boy. Her close, extended family zealously wishes her married, but forbids her to marry a non-Jew. So, when Jill brings Mark home for Shabbat dinner she urges him to pretend to be Jewish. He "passes" with flying colors. One thing leads to another -- until Mark's cover is blown, and Jill must make a decision about her happiness. In German with subtitles. In Person: Director Dirk Regel. Followed by a Post-Film Reception, including raffle, for young adults at Finale Desserterie and Bakery, 1306 Beacon Street, Brookline. OH, WHAT A MESS! ticket serves as admission.
