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 multi-generational dance/movement workshop, featuring dancer Adam McKinney (Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre), will be held on Wednesday, February 9 from 10-11:30am at the Leventhal-Sidman JCC (333 Nahanton Street) in Newton. There is no charge to attend.
Using dance techniques from McKinney’s training and incorporating the work of arts organization DNAWORKS, the workshop will allow dancers and non-dancers of all ages to explore their personal heritage and stories through movement and self-expression.
DNAWORKS, co-directed by McKinney and Daniel Banks, PhD, strives to further artistic expression and dialogue by focusing on issues of identity, culture, heritage and class. Daniel Banks, PhD, is a Boston native and international theatre director. Register by calling 617-558-6483. The workshop is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Center for the Arts.
