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.”
Upcoming IFFP Events
Track 1: Open House Meet & Greet with Staff, Clergy, and Board
Track 2: Earth Day Speakers on April 22nd
On Sunday, April 22nd, at 11:00 a.m., the Environment Working Group (EWG) of the Interfaith Families Project of Greater Washington (IFFP) is honored to host Joelle Novey and Laura Long, of Interfaith Power & Light (DC.MD.NoVA) (http://ipldmv.org), at its adult education meeting. The theme of the meeting is how faith communities in our region are responding to climate change as religious communities. Joelle, who attends Minyan Segulah and Tikkun Leil Shabbat, and Laura, who attends Silver Spring United Methodist Church, will share how their Jewish and Christian traditions, respectively, inform and inspire their environmental work. Regardless of faith, all are welcome to join the community for this important and meaningful discussion. Invite your family and friends.
