Winter Session: Thursdays: May 2, 9, 16, 23 2019

Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. For 20 years our four-session workshop has been a model to guide couples in openly discussing issues they face as partners from two different backgrounds.

We offer you a safe environment to work on creating your religious lives together. You can make Jewish choices while still respecting your partner’s religion. Be part of our ever-expanding interfaith community.
