Montreal – Couples and Conversation – Postponed

March 26, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0

Being part of an interfaith/intercultural 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 and/or cultural traditions in their lives together.

“Couples and Convesation” – meets Thursday, March 26 and April 2 and Tuesday April  7 and 14 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm.  The workshop will be facilitated by Rabbi Boris Dolin and will be held at Congregation Dorshei Emet, 18 Cleve Rd., Hampstead, QC, H3X 1A6. The cost of the workshop is $50/couple.

Couples are invited to participate if they are seriously dating, engaged or newly married, exploring the issue of religion/culture 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
