Couples and Conversation: Building a Life as an Interfaith* Couple - a Workshop with 18Doors
*Intercultural, Dual-faith, Mixed Heritage, Jew-ish . . .

Rabbi Andy Kahn, Congregation Emanu-El Rabbi & 18Doors Rukin Rabbinic Fellow

This class will be conducted virtually. A link for the virtual classroom will be in your confirmation email.

Being part of an interfaith/Jew-ish/multifaith/however-you-define-yourself couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers to your questions alone. This online workshop offers a safe environment to work on creating your religious/cultural lives together.

Couples are invited to participate if they are seriously dating, engaged, or newly married; exploring the issue of religion/culture in their relationship; and:

  • want to explore questions about their life together, including: How can we honor both of our heritages? Can we raise our children in one religion while exposing them to the other? How will we celebrate holidays and life cycle events? How can we talk to parents and other relatives about issues related to our interfaith relationship?
  • want to discuss and begin to make decisions about their religious/spiritual/cultural life together with support from other couples and a nonjudgmental facilitator
    want guidance from a facilitator who has experience helping interfaith couples address actual and potential challenges specific to them
  • want to get to know and develop relationships with other interfaith couples thinking about similar issues
