To Tree or Not To Tree: December Decisions (National) – Online
December 14 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm ESTFree
The December holiday time can and should be joyful, but it can also bring up tensions with our partners and immediate or extended families. Join Rabbi Denise Handlarski from 18Doors and Lauren Schreiber Sasaki from Jewish& along with other interfaith couples to discuss how you navigate the winter holidays in a safe and supportive space.
Many couples face similar questions around decision-making, from whether to have a Christmas tree to how to handle gift giving, and we can learn from one another. 18Doors has experience and advice for navigating this time of year with compassion and understanding.
