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.
On Erev Rosh Hashanah (Wednesday, September 28) and Kol Nidre (Friday, October 7) from 5-5:30 p.m. Temple Israel extends a warm welcome to families with young children (birth-kindergarten) to join our clergy for an age appropriate Service to introduce the Holy Day and still be home in time for bed! A special prayer book, created by Temple Israel’s clergy, is used at the Service. This Service also contains a story geared to this age group.
These services are free and open to members and non-members. However, a “Rainbow Ticket” is required by security in order to enter the building for the Younger Children’s Services. Please contact Laurena Rosenberg at 617-566-3960 or firstname.lastname@example.org in order to obtain your ticket. One Rainbow Ticket will allow your family to access any of the Younger Children’s Services (Erev Rosh Hashanah, Wed., Sept. 28 @ 5 PM; Rosh Hashanah, Thurs., Sept. 29 @ 8:45 AM; Kol Nidre, Fri., Oct. 7 @ 5 PM; and Yom Kippur, Sat., Oct. 8 at 8:45 a.m.). All other services require different tickets.
