The Resource Center for Jewish Clergy supports rabbis and cantors looking to engage interfaith couples and families in their communities and help them make a stronger connection with Judaism. The RCJC also connects Jewish clergy who are welcoming and supportive of interfaith families with each other. The RCJC is intended for Jewish clergy of all denominations and perspectives to provide a forum for dialogue, sharing challenges and solutions in the effort to open and deepen the connection of interfaith families with Jewish life and community.
We know from our user surveys that people are looking for interfaith family friendly organizations and programs.
A professional listing will allow users who are looking for clergy in your community (including those who are not members of the Network) to find your profile and be able to contact you.
In 2010 we responded to over 1,600 requests for wedding officiants and over 160 requests to find rabbis and cantors for other life cycle celebrations. Last year we had over 415 rabbis and cantors on our national referral list. You can be on our list too!
