jHUB, an 18Doors affiliate, provides new ways for interfaith couples and families to comfortably explore, discover and personalize the meaning of Jewish culture and values in the modern world. We are here to help you navigate life’s challenges in a comfortable place—at your own pace. We aren’t big on labels at jHUB. Our goal isn’t to find the right box for you to fit into. We just want to hear your story to get to know you better and help connect you to what you may be seeking.
If you’re currently engaged, whether or not you have a wedding date at this point, we hope you’ll join us for this special Discussion Forum where couples will have the opportunity to share their experiences and the decisions they’re making, and where you’ll hear from 18Doors’ Rabbi Robyn and Rabbi Malka about their experiences and advice from working with numerous interfaith wedding couples.
Open to all engaged or newly married couples who are interfaith, Our Year of Firsts offers you the opportunity to explore the deeper meaning behind Jewish holidays, create new traditions together and meet other couples.
18Doors welcomes Rise Gatherings Retreat Creators for a High Holiday Nature Experience. Together we will tap into our reciprocal relationship with nature as a way to explore the themes of the High Holidays.
Rabbi Melinda Mersack is the Director of jHUB. She runs events for couples and families to socialize and discuss relevant issues, and workshops 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.
