Workshops in Growing as a Jewish/Christian Couple

 

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? 

Do you have questions about how to raise your children? Deal with extended family? Celebrate both Christian and Jewish holidays?

 

The series will be led by Rev. Julia Jarvis, Spiritual Director of IFFP, Rabbi Tamara Miller, and Father Michael Kelly of St. Martin of Tours, with a total of over 60 years of experience in marrying & counseling interfaith couples. The series is cumulative, so please plan to attend all sessions. 

We are also honored to be joined for the Nov. 3rd session by author and IFFP member Susan Katz Miller. Susan Katz Miller is the author of “Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family” and her NEW book, “The Interfaith Family Journal”. Make sure to check out Susan’s blog, where you can find lots of valuable stories about her journey in the world of interfaith families.

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.”
