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!

For interfaith couples and families, what does celebrating both Passover and Easter holidays look like? We may look forward to the spring holidays and feel anxiety about the tensions they bring with them at the same time. Join 18Doors Rukin Rabbinic Fellow Rabbi Stephanie, who herself grew up in an interfaith family, for advice on navigating this time of year with compassion and understanding.
Join us as we explore Passover and Easter a little deeper with Rukin Rabbinic Fellowship Alumnus Rabbi Steven Philp of Mishkan Chicago and Rev. Jason Lydon from Second Unitarian Church of Chicago. Bring the questions you've always wanted to ask about these holidays, and find out what these theological differences can mean in your interfaith home.
Buying your first home is a big deal. If you're beginning to ask yourself where to start, how much money to save, or what it means to build a Jewish (including Jew-ish, Jew adjacent, interfaith and multi-faith) home, we've got the perfect program for you. Join 18Doors and a realtor from Move With Pride for a discussion aimed at helping couples navigate home-buying. (And, if you were wondering, bayit means "house" in Hebrew!)
Join 18Doors and real estate expert Jon Effron of Compass Real Estate for an interactive evening designed to help interfaith couples and growing families in Atlanta navigate the homebuying process and make your house a home. (Bayit means "house" in Hebrew!) Food and drinks will be provided (kosher options available). Attendees will be entered into a raffle for a $100 Home Depot gift card and will have the opportunity to receive a Free Financial Coaching session.
As grandparents of interfaith families, our Passover seders and traditions may look different now than they did many years ago. Join 18Doors' Rabbi Malka Packer-Monroe and fellow grandparents of interfaith families to revisit Passover through a new lens! We'll discuss the universally accessible themes of Passover, best practices for engaging our adult children and grandchildren of different faith backgrounds, and have time to build community with other grandparents across North America.
Join us as we explore Passover and Easter a little deeper with Rukin Rabbinic Fellowship Alumnus Rabbi Steven Philp of Mishkan Chicago and Rev. Jason Lydon from Second Unitarian Church of Chicago. This discussion is for Jewish professionals and clergy of all faiths who want to deepen their understanding of the relationship between these two holidays in order to better serve interfaith couples and families.
