18Doors changed its name from InterfaithFamily in February 2020. Wondering what 18Doors, with the tagline Unlocking Jewish, means? The number 18 and the doors evoke:
At the same time, these are not symbols that are necessary for someone to recognize in order to see that we are here to open doors, and that there are many ways to unlock Jewish.

We love 18Doors!!! We’ve been going to monthly meetups and they’re wonderful! It’s been such a blessing! And we love the rabbi who leads it so much we are probably going to join his temple! My favorite thing is how different every couples’ situation is and to be completely frank, how comfortable I’ve felt being open regardless, and being able to talk without judgement. It’s just a great program.
Oh, my gosh! That is fantastic information! We are feeling so much better about our options. I was so afraid we would have to bring in a rabbi from so far away. We will be in contact with “our Rabbis” as soon as possible. Your service and response time rock!
Finding 18Doors was an emotional lifesaver for me. The resources and information provided through the site are easy to navigate, extremely helpful and validating. I am proud to refer people to the site and have received many expressions of gratitude from other interfaith couples who did not know such a wonderful resource existed.
