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.
A multimedia dance performance that traces the intersections of dancer Adam McKinney’s multiple heritages will take place at the Wellesley College Jewett Arts Center on Saturday, February 12 at 8pm.

McKinney danced with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Bejart Ballet Lausanne and Alonzo King’s LINES Ballet. The performance is directed by Daniel Banks, PhD, a Boston native and international theatre director. There will be a post-performance discussion with McKinney and Banks.
The event is presented by the Jewish Community Centers of Greater Boston and Wellesley College Hillel and is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Performing Arts Series.
