About Us:

Are you in an interfaith relationship? The adult child of an interfaith family? The Jewish parent of a child who has married a non-Jew? For anyone whose life is touched by intermarriage, Building Jewish Bridges offers programs to encourage discussion of challenges unique to interfaith couples and families. Our programs, which range from couple groups to workshops to facilitated chavurot (gatherings of friends) give couples an opportunity to share information, resources and participate in a process of clarifying values. We try to provide a comfortable place in which you can start exploring religious and cultural differences.
