Couples and Conversation: Building a Life Together as an Interfaith* Couple

*Intercultural, Dual-faith, Mixed Heritage, Jew-ish . . .

Being part of an interfaith/Jew-ish/multi-faith/however-you-define-yourself couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. This online workshop offers a safe environment to work on creating your religious/cultural lives together. It is intended for seriously dating, engaged and newly married Jewish/interfaith couples.

“Couples and Conversation” meets four times: November 5, November 19 and December 3 at 8pm EDT. When we meet we will pick a date for our final session. It will be facilitated by Rabbi Malka Packer-Monroe, director of 18Doors Atlanta. The workshop is $18/couple and registration is required.

Want to explore questions about your life together? Topics include: How can we honor both of our heritages? How will we celebrate holidays and lifecycle events? Can we raise our children in one religion while exposing them to the other one? How can we talk to parents and other relatives about issues related to our interfaith relationship?

Want to discuss and begin to make decisions about your religious/spiritual/cultural life together with support from other couples and a non-judgmental facilitator?

You’ll receive guidance from a facilitator who has experience working with interfaith couples and helping them to address actual and potential challenges particular to them. You’ll also get to know and other interfaith couples who are thinking about similar issues. For more information, email rabbimalka@18doors.org.
