IFFP remains online. Please see the calendar for details.
Our offices are closed until further notice.
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
This service will be live streamed on Facebook by the DC Center
Join us on Sunday at 10 am on Zoom for a joyful Gathering as we celebrate Shavuot, bless the babies born recently to IFFP families, and also blessing IFFP’s high school and college graduates.
Since the Covid-19 pandemic forced the Interfaith Families Project (IFFP) online last year, we have noticed ongoing participation from families throughout the United States and Canada. Therefore, we are pleased to announce the offer of a Virtual Membership for families who live outside of the Greater Washington DC area.
More from the IFFP blog
The concept of ‘tikkun olam,’ which can be traced back to Hebrew prayers and Jewish mystical tradition, focuses on “repairing the world.” The desire to personally and collectively work toward a more socially equitable, environmentally sound, and inclusive, and welcoming society is a thread woven throughout the Interfaith Families Project’s tikkun olam activities.
On Sunday, March 7th, IFFP will be continuing its 25th-anniversary celebration by honoring our first Rabbi, Harold White. In this month’s blog post, we share a reflection written by Rabbi White on his own experiences with the Lenten and Passover holiday season.
On Being Both
Be sure to read On Being Both, a wonderful blog about interfaith life by IFFP member Sue Katz Miller, a journalist whose work has appeared in Newsweek, New Scientist, The New York Times, and The Christian Science Monitor.
