ms_fifi:  I’m not sure there is a straightforward answer to your question. Many Rabbis won’t perform an interfaith ceremony, period. Those that will perform an interfaith ceremony, from my experience, are typically very reform and liberal in their thinking. I’m not sure if they would ask you if you plan on raising your children in one faith or another… but if they did I definitely wouldn’t lie about it!

I don’t know the answer to your question, but I know I wouldn’t lie. If the priest or rabbi won’t perform the ceremony unless you do or promise to do something you’re not comfortable with, then you should re-think whether and why you want to incorporate that religion into your ceremony. I think it’s perfectly fine for them to have their rules and it’s perfectly fine for you to disagree with them, but I don’t think it would be ok to lie just to get the ceremony you envisioned. I do hope it works out though. Best wishes!

Although I don’t know the answer, my guess would be that a lot would depend on whether your husband’s family are Reformed or Orthadox.
