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.
As a Denver native, I have long and deep connections to Feldman Mortuary. I remember my grandparents’ funerals and how much Steve and Jim Cohen eased our family’s sorrow. Their compassion, kindness and caring helped us so much!
People ask why I would want to work in such a “depressing” business. I believe it is a gift that the families we serve allow us to help them carry their pain, if only for a short time. I am grateful for the opportunity to help people through some of their most difficult days.
I am a board member of Great Education Colorado, serve on committees at Temple Sinai, work on committees for Jewish Family Service and I am active at my kids’ schools.
My husband, Jon, and I have two amazing sons, Alec and Danny. We love to hike, see movies, play games and read together.
