WELCOME

Welcome to IFF/Boston!

interfaith [in-ter-feyth]: adjective 1. of, operating, or occurring between persons belonging to different religions.

We at InterfaithFamily understand that the definition goes far beyond Webster’s.

How do you interfaith?…Interfaith relationship? Intercultural relationship? Interfaith children or grandchildren? Child of an interfaith family?

We have a knack for that! And many, many resources to help you celebrate Judaism your way!
