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.
Temple Emanuel is a modern Reform congregation in which people come to mark life's passages and discover a Jewish way of making sense out of the world.
We celebrate the truth that there is more than one way to be a Jew, that there are many different doorways into a more meaningful Jewish life. Our goal is to be a mezuzah on those doors, encouraging both our members and visitors to embrace the resources of our nurturing intergenerational and multicultural community to enrich their journeys. We have many different kinds of families within our community, and we teach our children through innovative and award winning schools: Temple Emanuel Early Childhood Center, Temple Emanuel Religious School, and Temple Emanuel Academy Day School.
The vision of Temple Emanuel is “Living Judaism.” What is “Living Judaism?” It is a Judaism that is alive and vibrant and innovative and changing. It is also a life journey enriched through worship that moves the soul, through Torah study that challenges the mind, through art and culture that heightens the senses, through a connection with Israel that deepens Jewish peoplehood, and through social justice work that makes a difference in the world.
