“Love and Religion” March 2020 – Boston
Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. This workshop offers a safe environment to work on creating your lives together. It is intended for seriously dating, engaged and newly married interfaith/intercultural couples to talk about how to have religious/cultural traditions in their lives together.
“Love and Religion” – meets 4 Wednesday evenings, March 11, 18 and 25 and April 1 from 7:30 – 9:00 pm. The workshop will be facilitated by 18Doors Rukin Rabbinic Fellow Rabbi Braham David. We will meet at Temple Emanuel Newton,
385 Ward St,
Newton, MA 02459. The cost of the workshop is $50/couple.
Couples should participate if they are seriously dating, engaged or newly married, exploring the issue of religion in their relationship, and:
want to explore questions about their life together, including: How can we honor both of our heritages? Can we raise our children in one religion while exposing them to the other one? How will we celebrate holidays and lifecycle events? 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 their religious/spiritual/cultural life together with support from other couples and a non-judgmental facilitator
want guidance from a facilitator who has experience working with interfaith couples and helping them to address actual and potential challenges particular to them
want to get to know and develop relationships with other interfaith couples who are thinking about similar issues
This workshop is co-sponsored by Temple Emanuel Newton and Jewish Discovery Institute.
