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.
2nd Career and LOVE IT! I am senior Rabbi of Temple Shalom in Franklin NJ. I Believe with all of my heart there is One God, (and we have all found different ways to communicate with the Divine); and I have been blessed to enjoy what I do. I like to think my decisions are based on what I have been taught and read in Torah and truly wrestle with the words of Torah, which lead me to my beliefs. I am happy to lend assistance to any cleric who needs to know how I deal with interfaith....life ceremonies, as well as holidays. Todah Robah!
