Our Year of Firsts: Parenting Edition (National) – Online

March 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST


Does this describe you and your partner? We’re an interfaith (intercultural, dual faith, Jew-ish, etc.) couple, and raising – or about to raise – our first child. We want to create new traditions & celebrate Jewish holidays with our child in a way that is meaningful to us. We’d like to figure out how we want our religious or spiritual lives to look in the future. We could use guidance from a welcoming and non-judgmental rabbi. We’d like to hear how other interfaith couples are navigating this. If so, you’d be perfect for Our Year of Firsts: Parenting Edition. Registration for Our Year of Firsts: Parenting Edition is open now!

Our Year of Firsts: Parenting Edition will launch a new parenting program targeting interfaith couples in their first ~18 months of being parents as a partnership between a national leader in interfaith engagement, 18Doors, and Rabbi Meredith Kahan of Rockdale Temple in Cincinati. The goal is to provide low barrier settings for parents to build community, connections and confidence in participating in Jewish life and raising Jewish children.

This national cohort will be hosted online via Zoom.

Our session dates are as follows:
March 6, 2024
March 20. 2024
April 3, 2024
April 17, 2024
May 1, 2024
May 15, 2024

Our Year of Firsts: Parenting Edition is generously supported by Reflect Cincy. As a result, if you are from Cincinnati, we will offer additional opportunities to meet in-person outside the sessions described above. Rabbi Kahan will be in touch with more details as those events are scheduled.




Rabbi Meredith Kahan serves as Senior Rabbi of Rockdale Temple in Cincinnati, Ohio. She previously served as their Associate Rabbi & Educator for seven years. She received her social work degree from Ohio State, and was ordained in 2013 from HUC-Cincinnati. Rabbi Kahan’s professional passions include liturgy and sacred music; engaging families with young children; community-wide and multi-faith work; innovating in congregational programming and building affinity spaces. She and her husband do their best to keep up with their three young children. Rabbi Kahan is honored to be a Rukin Rabbinic Fellow and to learn alongside colleagues who are dedicated to creating a more inclusive and affirming Jewish community.


18Doors believes our community is enriched by the diversity of its members. We welcome everyone, and invite racially diverse and LGBTQ individuals to participate in our programming. All of our virtual programs offer automated closed captioning. If you need additional captioning support, or any other accommodations to fully participate in a program, please let us know on your registration form.
