Are you looking for Jewish clergy for your upcoming wedding or baby naming? Seeking help on your journey to conversion? If you’re looking for guidance with a lifecycle event or to find inclusive Jewish events and meet other interfaith couples at your life stage, we’re here to help you. We are thrilled to have a Rukin Rabbinic Fellow, Rabbi Greg Weisman, here in Boca Raton to support you.
Rabbi Greg and our other Rukin Fellows throughout the U.S. and Canada offer programming for interfaith/intercultural couples and families to discuss relevant issues. We hope you’ll join Rabbi Greg for programs and workshops, which include opportunities to reflect on your backgrounds, differences and similarities and discuss your hopes, plans and dreams for the future. He is also available for one-on-one consultations and to refer you to local Jewish clergy and organizations that welcome interfaith/intercultural couples and families. Contact him at email@example.com.
You're engaged--mazel tov (congratulations!)! In this workshop, you'll get to meet other Jewish-interfaith couples planning their weddings and have access to 18Doors staff members who've planned their own Jewish-interfaith weddings. We'll go over the "how tos" of finding an officiant, determining the elements that make a wedding Jewish, and brainstorming how to customize a ceremony that reflects both you and your partner's identities.
Being part of an interfaith/Jew-ish/multi-faith/however-you-define-yourself couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. This online workshop offers a safe environment to work on creating your religious/cultural lives together. It is intended for seriously dating, engaged, and newly married couples in their 20s and 30s.
Are you leading a Passover seder this year (perhaps for the first time)? Whether you’re leading a small seder or a large one, we have the tools you need to feel confident creating a seder that’s right for your interfaith, intercultural or mixed-heritage family. Join 18Doors for learning, conversation and questions, including basic elements of leading a seder and suggesting different Haggadot (books to lead you through the ritual meal).
For interfaith couples and families, what does celebrating both Passover and Easter holidays look like? We may look forward to the spring holidays and feel anxiety about the tensions they bring with them at the same time. Join 18Doors Rukin Rabbinic Fellow Rabbi Stephanie, who herself grew up in an interfaith family, for advice on navigating this time of year with compassion and understanding.
As grandparents of interfaith families, our Passover seders and traditions may look different now than they did many years ago. Join 18Doors' Rabbi Malka Packer-Monroe and fellow grandparents of interfaith families to revisit Passover through a new lens! We'll discuss the universally accessible themes of Passover, best practices for engaging our adult children and grandchildren of different faith backgrounds, and have time to build community with other grandparents across North America.
