The Interfaith Families Project


The Interfaith Families Project of Greater Washington (IFFP) is an independent community of interfaith families and others committed to sharing, learning about, and celebrating our Jewish and Christian traditions. It is the only interfaith organization of its kind in the country.

IFFP offers many programs to meet the varied needs of interfaith families. We have a weekly program on Sunday, which includes a gathering, our Interfaith Sunday School, and an adult group discussion. Throughout the year we sponsor special events such as High Holy Days services and a women's retreat, couples workshops, and community service opportunities for members of all ages.

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 seeks to develop our children, ourselves, and our community in an environment that encourages questions and respects different answers. IFFP provides opportunities for education about Christianity and Judaism, holiday celebrations, fellowship, spiritual gatherings, community service, and exploration of interfaith identity.
