A word about interfaith weddings:
We view all marriages as a transitional moment when a couple's commitment to each other can also be a time of dedication to a spiritual journey. The clergy of the Jewish Studio understand this as an opportunity to increase your connection to Judaism and God.
The first step in that journey as a couple is a wedding ceremony fashioned upon Jewish law and tradition.
Believing that Judaism has much to offer this world and with the future of your relationship in mind, for every couple, we ask that you consider the following:
A commitment to establish a Jewish home and/or raise Jewish children.
Knowledge about the core values of Judaism based on a course of study in Judaism before the wedding.
If one partner is from a different faith or tradition, we prefer that they not be practicing that faith in order to leave open the possibility of nurturing Judaism in their home.
Spiritual Direction (“Hashpa'ah”):
The Jewish Studio also offers personal and group spiritual direction. Our colleague Rabbi Shawn Zevit of Philadelphia described this type of spiritual direction as the following:
Jewish spiritual direction or Hashpa'ah (Divine Flow) is a process for exploring our connection with what we experience as God, Spirit, Truth — however we express and understand the Sacred in our lives.
Through these explorations, those engaged in spiritual direction, try to discern the presence of the Sacred, in their everyday lives, work, celebrations, and struggles.
This call explores the historic and current evolution of Jewish spiritual direction, some of the key elements of the experience, and how this sacred practice can help individuals and communities deepen their connections to God, self, community, and the world.
