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.
At our Sim Shalom Havurah on the Upper West Side of NYC on Friday Dec. 3rd at 7pm, light Shabbat Candles, sing, smile, welcome each other, and pray from the siddur that is projected on the wall in our space (as well as on the screens of our online participant's computers).
Rabbi Blane plays guitar, piano and uke and leads a happy, unique- yet familiar- joyful Shabbat service.
The entire community will also say Torah Blessings and then read from the Torah and the portion of the week, using the traditional trope (melody). We will also say a prayer for the sick and a Mourner's Kaddish for those who have passed.
Join us and help our community grow!
