Welcome! For interfaith couples and families in formation, we help you build confidence in your relationship with Jewish. We understand Jewish interfaith relationships – and deliver knowledge and connection to help you open the door to Jewish in a non-judgmental way.

Our Mission

18Doors empowers people in interfaith relationships— individuals, couples, families and their children—to engage in Jewish life and make Jewish choices, and encourages Jewish communities to welcome them.

Our Rebranding

We’re 18Doors, previously InterfaithFamily: new name, same mission. We’re still offering programming for interfaith couples and families, professional development for Jewish organizations and digital content for more exploration.

We were founded during the early stages of interfaith acceptance in Jewish communities. Our organization has served as an industry leader in making Jewish more welcoming and inclusive. We are experts, thought leaders and institutional consultants who are committed to learning, advocating and promoting the needs of interfaith couples in their relationship with Jewish. As the Jewish community has begun to follow in our footsteps, we are at the crux of building and shaping new access points to Jewish for young interfaith couples and families. Today, we are meeting this new era of Jewish as 18Doors: an approachable and impactful team of professionals leading change. 18Doors is an entry point to Jewish, forming our programs and services to meet the unique and evolving needs of interfaith couples and families.

Our Vision: People in interfaith relationships are welcomed and embraced by Jewish communities and contribute to Judaism’s enduring strength and continuity.

Our History

From a simple online magazine launched in 1998 focused on helping Jewish interfaith families, a non-profit mission has evolved. Edmund Case founded InterfaithFamily in 2001 which has grown beyond its internet beginnings to provide content and connections, both online and in local communities. Interfaith couples and families continue to gain understanding of Jewish for their lives. Clergy and program providers access resources and trainings to engage and connect effectively with those couples and families. Now as 18Doors, we continue to welcome and lead the way for Jewish interfaith communities.
