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 Four Worlds refer to a kabbalistic way of approaching the world. Whether we call them Body, Heart, Mind, and Soul; Assiyah, Yetzirah, Briah, and Atzilut; or Earth, Water, Air, and Fire, these Four Worlds are our portals to connecting with ourselves, each other, our world and the Divine. Join us for a walking exploration of the Four Worlds as they manifest in nature as Rock, River, Cloud and Flame—terms that are found in the Torah. We will combine text-study with contemplative practice, prayer and song in the great outdoors to get to know the Four Worlds and how to engage them creatively, joyously and Jewishly.
