Mixed Up Love: Relationships, Family, and Religious Identity in the 21st Century
Sponsor San Francisco Bay Area
Type of Event Education
Description Join InterfaithFamily/Bay Area with partners: Congregation Beth Israel Judea, Or Shalom Jewish Community, Congregation B'nai Emunah, and Congregation Ner Tamid for a presentation and discussion with Mixed Up Love authors Rabbi Michal Woll and Jon M. Sweeney

Dating, commitment, kids, and family — it’s all hard work, and it’s even harder when you come from different religious backgrounds. Jon, a catholic writer, and Michal, a Reconstructionist Rabbi, live out the challenges of an interfaith relationship every day as husband and wife, and as parents to their daughter Sima, who is being raised Jewish. Authors Rabbi Michal Woll and Jon M. Sweeney explore how interfaith relationships affect dating, weddings, holidays, raising children, and family functions — and how not to just cope, but thrive. This will be a fascinating and inspiring event — not to be missed!

The event will be held on Thursday, March 20, 7:00 PM at Congregation Beth Israel Judea, 625 Brotherhood Way, San Francisco, CA 94132. For more information, contact the BIJ office at 415-586-8833 or
