Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. For 20 years, our workshop has been a model to guide couples in openly discussing issues they face as partners from two different backgrounds. Usually a four-part series, we are offering this special, day-long intensive for those looking to complete the workshop in a single day.

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.

Before registering, please make sure you are familiar with our registration policies.
