Love and Religion - Online

 Registration is closed for this event
Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. For 16 years, Dr. Marion Usher has offered a four-session workshop at the Washington DC JCC that has been a model to guide couples in openly discussing issues they face as partners from two different backgrounds. The workshop offers you a safe environment to work on creating your religious lives together. You can make Jewish choices while still respecting your partner’s religion.

InterfaithFamily.com is now pleased to pilot the Love and Religion workshop, facilitated by Dr. Usher herself, using an online video conferencing system.

Love and Religion – Online meets each Tuesday for four weeks, October 20 and 27 and November 3 and 10, from 7:30 to 9:00 pm eastern time. The cost is $36 per couple.

You can learn more and watch a short video about the workshop at www.interfaithfamily.com/loveandreligion.

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 “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?
