Events: Connect with Us

Whether you’re part of an interfaith couple, raising kids in an interfaith home, a grandparent in an interfaith family or a Jewish professional, we’ve got events just for you.

We are happy to announce that select 18Doors events will return for in-person gatherings. We are adhering to local state guidelines and will be prioritizing the safety of both our staff and all participants. We will now specify clearly in each event listing if the event will take place in-person or online via Zoom. You can find the safety guidelines on the registration page for each event. See below for all the virtual events we’re hosting for couples, parents, grandparents, and professionals. We hope to see you in person again soon!
