Understanding the Complex Challenges Facing Interfaith Couples
An In-Depth Training for Clergy, Educators, Professionals & Lay Leaders Working with Interfaith Couples
Participants in this full day of training will gain valuable skills to help interfaith couples communicate more effectively on the complex issues which challenge their relationship. The day will focus on understanding the meaning of each partner's religious background as well as concerns involving parents and extended family. This training will provide facilitators with insights to enable interfaith couples to choose a clear religious identity for their children and will emphasize appreciation for the non-Jewish partners who choose to raise Jewish children.
