Are you looking for Jewish clergy for your upcoming wedding or baby naming? Seeking help on your journey to conversion? If you’re looking for guidance with a lifecycle event or to find inclusive Jewish events and meet other interfaith couples at your life stage, we’re here to help you. We are thrilled to have a Rukin Rabbinic Fellow, Rabbi Meredith Kahan, here in Cincinnati to support you.

Rabbi Meredith and our other Rukin Fellows throughout the U.S. and Canada offer programming for interfaith/intercultural couples and families to discuss relevant issues. We hope you’ll join Rabbi Meredith for programs and workshops, which include opportunities to reflect on your backgrounds, differences and similarities and discuss your hopes, plans and dreams for the future. She is also available for one-on-one consultations and to refer you to local Jewish clergy and organizations that welcome interfaith/intercultural couples and families. Contact her at rabbimeredith@18doors.org.
