Hello, I hope you can help me.  My brother is very much in love with a Jewish women and they will marry soon and he has agreed to undertake all that has been asked of him by his Rabbi to do so.  However, since we were young we have always gone to church as a family and we would like for him to continue doing so for social and family reasons rather than religious ones, he also wants to continue for the same reasons but we are all worried about offending his wife and her family. 

Can anyone give my family any advice? Thankyou.

For some Jews, going to church with Christian family members and friends is comfortable and easy. They are able to listen to the words and appreciate them, even if they aren’t all applicable (for example, Jews do not follow the New Testament, or believe in Jesus as messiah). For others, the idea of going to church is uncomfortable and not something they would want to try.

I suggest talking directly to your brother and his wife about their comfort with the idea.
