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.
