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 third 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: Jewish Leader and Rev. Julia discuss interfaith family issues (GYM)
Adult Group: New Jewish Leader discusses a topic related to racial justice.
Make sure to join us at IFFP on Sunday. We have so many wonderful things happening, including our Nativity Play, Holiday Party & Potluck, and Craft Fair! Be at Charles E Smith Jewish Day School at 10:00 am to join us!
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at IFFP! We'll see you again on Sunday, December 8th!
