InterfaithFamily (IFF) is proud to announce the first-of-its-kind IFF Rukin Rabbinic Fellowship Program. The Rukin Fellows will become part of a unique community of practice which will help them to hone their skills working with interfaith couples. All Rukin Fellows will receive preferred listing in IFF’s Officiation Referral Service, mentorship from IFF experts, access to our resources and codified materials, the opportunity to facilitate workshops and programs for couples and more – including a $5,000 yearly stipend.

We are seeking rabbis for this two-year Fellowship who already have some experience working with interfaith couples and families, and who want to take their work to the next level.

IFF will be accepting applications from rabbis throughout the United States (EXCEPT FOR Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland and Washington, D.C.) for the initial cohort of the IFF Rukin Rabbinic Fellowship Program from October 8 through November 30, 2018.

Each Rukin Fellow will receive:

  • Membership in an initial cohort of 10 rabbis (plus another 15 rabbis who will be accepted for the second cohort in 2020)
  • In-person professional development and skill-building at the Fellowship launch retreat in March 2019 and a subsequent retreat in March 2020
  • Learning through participation in webinars that will take place every 4-6 weeks
  • Mentorship through virtual, monthly sessions with the Fellowship’s Director who will support them in their work with interfaith couples
  • The opportunity to facilitate workshops and programs for interfaith couples in their area using the IFF codified curriculum
  • The opportunity to connect with local interfaith couples through IFF’s Officiation Referral Service
  • Preferred listing on IFF’s Officiation Referral Service leading to opportunities to officiate many lifecycle events
  • A featured profile on the IFF website and opportunities to blog for IFF
  • a yearly stipend of $5,000 for facilitating workshops and programs for couples
  • Membership in an Alumni Network at the completion of the Fellowship

Each Rukin Fellow will commit to:

  • Attending two in-person retreats: a three-day retreat in Philadelphia from Sunday, March 3 – Tuesday, March 5, 2019 and another three-day retreat in March 2020
  • Participation in webinars every 4-6 weeks
  • Participation in monthly check-ins with a mentor
  • Facilitating workshops and programs for interfaith couples (seriously dating, engaged and newly married) in their area who do not yet have children using the IFF codified curriculum
  • Connecting with local interfaith couples through IFF’s Officiation Referral Service and helping them, among other things, to find clergy to officiate their lifecycle events. By the time they have completed the Fellowship, Fellows should have connected with at least 50 local people in interfaith relationships (some, though not necessarily all, through IFF’s Officiation Referral Service), helping them, among other things, to find clergy to officiate their lifecycle events and to navigate their interfaith relationships.

We are accepting applications from throughout the country EXCEPT FOR Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland and Washington, D.C.
