Are you part of an interfaith or multicultural family? We think you’ll feel right at home at Beth David.
Fully half of our Religious School families are interfaith. Beth David members who aren’t Jewish themselves but who are part of Jewish families serve on our Board of Trustees and committees, and participate from the bima (podium) in our services at b’nai mitzvah, on the High Holy Days, and throughout the year.
Rabbi Kalisch and Cantor Goodlev frequently officiate at Jewish weddings and other rituals for interfaith families, continuing a tradition started by our Rabbi Emeritus, Rabbi Henry Cohen, who was an early proponent for the active inclusion of interfaith families in synagogue life. Please feel free to reach out to our clergy to talk through any questions you might have.
The Jewish people has always been blessed to welcome people who became part of the Jewish community by marriage or simply by where they chose to make their homes. Beth David is proud to include interfaith families of all kinds, and we hope we can be a home to your diverse family.
