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.
The Book of Ruth is one of our greatest stories. Rich in imagery, personalities and spiritual emergence, it is an ideal text to engage with the techniques of bibliodrama for an in-depth exploration of the lessons that each of us can discover about ourselves and our world. This workshop will start with a bibliodrama—a deep experiential and expressive form of studying a text through role-play. We will explore the unspoken words/feelings/thoughts of the biblical figures through our own filters and let it resonate with our own life stories. Using spontaneity, creativity, role-playing and a close reading of the text, we will shed light on both the text and ourselves.
No prior dramatic experience or knowledge of the text is needed.
Shir Yaakov Feinstein-Feit will provide leadership for creative and joyous Shabbat services.
