Our Year of Firsts – December Virtual Discussion – Online

December 15, 2020 @ 8:00 pm EST


Our Year of Firsts

Open to all engaged or newly married couples who are interfaith (intercultural, dual faith, Jew-ish, etc.), Our Year of Firsts offers you the opportunity to explore the deeper meaning behind Jewish holidays, create new traditions together and meet other interfaith couples.

How it works:

  • You’ll receive monthly emails about how to incorporate Jewish holidays and religious/cultural elements into your interfaith relationship on the 1st of each month.
  • There will be quarterly virtual discussions with other participants (scheduled for Sept 2020, Dec 2020, March 2021, June 2021 and August 2021).
  • In the months when we don’t have a virtual discussion scheduled, we’ll offer virtual meetups based on topics you suggest.
  • You’ll also receive special gifts related to our discussion topic mailed to your home.

As an Our Year of Firsts participating couple you will:

  • Deepen your relationship with your partner and celebrate an exciting year together.
  • Discuss how you might want to celebrate your different backgrounds and traditions on your own and with your extended families.
  • Explore what is means to create a home for you and your partner.
  • Get curated content on a monthly topic delivered straight to your inbox from 18Doors including essays by other couples, recipes, cheat sheets and conversation starters to discuss with your partner.
  • Participate in quarterly virtual discussions and monthly meetups with other couples to share your own questions and hear how others are navigating the beginning of married life.
  • Be empowered to talk about spirituality/traditions/religion with your partner.
  • Access support from an experienced rabbi, 18Doors’ very own Rabbi Robyn Frisch.

Cost: $54 (per couple) to participate for the entire year-long series.

Couples can join Our Year of Firsts anytime.

The topic for our December virtual discussion will be “Our Year of Firsts: Navigating the December Discussion.” It is scheduled for Tuesday, December 15th at 8:00-9:15pm EST (5:00-6:15pm PST).
