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.
Participants in this full day of training will gain valuable skills to help interfaith couples communicate more effectively on the complex issues which challenge their relationship. The day will focus on understanding the meaning of each partner’s religious background as well as concerns involving parents and extended family. This training will provide facilitators with insights to enable interfaith couples to choose a clear religious identity for their children and will emphasize appreciation for the non-Jewish partners who choose to raise Jewish children. Please note this is a seminar style intensive training. Space is limited and registrations will be offered on a first come/first serve basis. Facilitated by Dr. Paula Brody, Director, Outreach Training Institute.
