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.
I have served as a rabbi in the rtoles of Hillel Director, Pulpit Rabbi, Counselor, Teacher, Professor, and Instructor. Professionally I have practiced law, been a consultant, manager, systems analyst, system designer, programmer, and editor. I value each person as a container of a spark of the divine. My goal is to use the beauty of ritual to celebrate liminal moments and to elevate the spark of divinity is all those present.
