A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. This workshop offers a safe environment to work on creating your religious lives together. You can make Jewish choices while honoring the traditions of both partners.

Couples should participate if they are dating, engaged or newly married, exploring the issue of religion in their relationship, and:
- want to have a religious life and are unclear how to discuss this issue with each other
- want to be with other couples who are struggling with the same issues
- want answers to their questions about religious life together, including: Where can we find Jewish clergy to marry us? Can our children be Jewish if one of us is not? How can we respect both our religions if we decide to have Judaism as the “lead religion”? How can we approach our parents to help us with these dilemmas? Can our children go to Hebrew school if they are not converted at birth?
