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 am the author of "Don't Bite Your Tongue: How to Foster Rewarding Relationships With Your Adult Children" and "Don't Roll Your Eyes: Making In-laws Into Family". I am available to speak on this topic. I encourage you to recommend me to organizations interested in a speaker regarding parenting adult children in interfaith families and/or grandparenting children with a different or no religion. In addition, I have spoken to synagogue groups about how to be more welcoming. For further information, please check my website:
