Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you donâ€™t need to find the answers alone. This workshop offers you a safe environment to work on creating your religious lives together. You can make Jewish choices while honoring the traditions of both partners.
InterfaithFamily is now pleased to offer Love and Religion â€“ Online, a workshop for newly married or seriously dating interfaith couples to talk about how to have religious traditions in their lives together. The workshop is facilitated by Rabbi Ari Poster Moffic, based on Love and Religion: An Interfaith Workshop for Jews and Their Partners, created by Marion L. Usher, Ph.D.
Love and Religion â€“ Online meets for the first session, on Thursday February 28th for an in-person for dinner in the city followed by a webex call on March 14 in the evening. There will be opportunities for other in-person sessions as well. The cost is $36 per couple.

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 my wife does not convert? What does a conversion require? How can we respect both our religions if we decide to have Judaism as the â€ślead religionâ€ť? 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?
