Are you in an interfaith marriage and want tools and support for living with two faiths?
Are you in an interfaith relationship and trying to determine whether marriage will work?

What do interfaith couples have to say about our workshop?
“The advice on how to speak to children about faith and religion was new to us and an important tool. The accessibility to religious leaders who have experience with interfaith couples was also a great tool.”
“I think the major benefit of the workshop was that it created a much more comfortable mind space or peace in us by allowing us to see similar couples think similarly and to see older couples who have succeeded in similar predicaments.”
