Our interfaith programming encompasses the many aspects of a relationship that combines religions. This includes heritage, tradition and the spirituality of both partners. Our goal is to provide a forum in which interfaith couples and families can explore and discuss a myriad of issues.

Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. For 15 years, our four-session workshop has been a model to guide couples in openly discussing issues they face as partners from two different backgrounds.
We offer you a safe environment to work on creating your religious lives together. You can make Jewish choices while still respecting your partner’s religion. Be part of the 16th Street J’s ever-expanding interfaith community.
