Welcome!

The Interfaith Families Project of Greater Washington (IFFP) is an independent community of interfaith families and others. We are committed to sharing, learning about, and celebrating our Jewish and Christian traditions.

Now in our second decade, we have grown to over 100 families from Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. It’s a place where both Jewish and Christian partners can feel like equal members of the community; where both can celebrate and learn about both faiths and where we “teach not preach.”

IFFP Welcomes YOU!  Please click to view our community inclusion statement.

New Members with Rabbi Rain

Something we are trying to do this year is suggest that people go out after Gathering/Sunday School and have lunch to get to know each other better. Some days staff will be able to join. We suggest visiting a park or Panera, or another restaurant nearby. If you are interested, you can contact Miranda.
