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.
Beth Israel is a Reconstructionist congregation in Media, Pennsylvania where you will find a vibrant community of individuals and families committed to celebrating our Judaism, nurturing our members, educating our children (and ourselves!) and repairing the world. Our religious tradition reflects our ancestors' search for meaning, purpose, and value. As we continue in their footsteps, we are egalitarian, participatory, and open-minded. Our diverse views of God emphasize godliness rather than the supernatural. We value that power in the universe that infuses all of creation with a sense of transcendence and impels us to improve the world and ourselves.
We express our beliefs in word and deed, prayer and action, learning and teaching.
