The year 2012 CE corresponds to the Hebrew year 5772.
Therefore Genesis, that is dated to the Hebrew year 0, is dated to the year 3761 BCE in the Gregorian Calendar.
These points don't exhaust the issues, but do illustrate some of the areas that need to be addressed. All decisions about ceremony and children need to take second place to the love relationship of the couple.
If that is weakened, then no matter how the children are raised, they will not benefit from the strong love of the couple. You cannot be a Jew and a Christian at the same time.
1765 BCE As mankind tried to “reach the sky“ God scattered it abroad upon the face of all the earth.
The place where this took place in was named “Babel,“ meaning “confusion” in Hebrew, since there God confounded the language of the earth.
After the Roman conquest of Jerusalem, boats filled with Jewish captives landed in Bordeaux, Arles and Lyons.
Archeological finds of Jewish objects with menorahs imprinted on them date back to the first through fifth century.
The information in this site is written predominantly from the Orthodox viewpoint, because I believe that is a good starting point for any inquiry into Judaism.
I have found that many young couples who may not be that connected to their faith traditions think that the religious issue will not be a problem.
Unfortunately, they don't appreciate how these matters may crop up later to present very difficult challenges.
You can be open to the other faith and appreciative of its values and traditions, but you cannot be both.
This truth is part of the limitation of life and part of the beauty of the diversity of the human experience.
