COVID-19 UPDATE

IFFP remains online. Please see the calendar for details.

Our offices are closed until further notice.

 

Welcome!

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.” 

IFFP Welcomes YOU!  Please click to view our community inclusion statement.

Don’t Wait for a Miracle – A Passover Message from Rabbi Debbie

Don’t Wait for a Miracle – A Passover Message from Rabbi Debbie

The story of Passover is the most miracle filled narrative in the Hebrew Bible. You’ve got the burning bush, the rods into serpents, the ten plagues, the crossing of the Red Sea, the pillars of smoke and fire, manna from heaven and of course, the giving of the law on Mount Sinai. It’s overwhelming to see God’s strength and power and divinity laid out so starkly in a narrative of human suffering and human hope.
