Our Year of Firsts

Open to all engaged or newly married couples who are interfaith (intercultural, dual faith, Jew-ish, etc.), Our Year of Firsts offers you the opportunity to explore the deeper meaning behind Jewish holidays, create new traditions together and meet other interfaith couples.

Learn more here.


How it works:

  • You’ll receive monthly emails about how to incorporate Jewish holidays and religious/cultural elements into your interfaith relationship on the 1st of each month.
  • There will be quarterly virtual discussions with other participants (scheduled for Sept 2021, Dec 2021, March 2022, June 2022 and August 2022).
  • In the months when we don’t have a virtual discussion scheduled, we’ll offer virtual meetups based on topics you suggest.
  • You’ll also receive special gifts related to our discussion topic mailed to your home.

As an Our Year of Firsts participating couple you will:

  • Deepen your relationship with your partner and celebrate an exciting year together.
  • Discuss how you might want to celebrate your different backgrounds and traditions on your own and with your extended families.
  • Explore what is means to create a home for you and your partner.
  • Get curated content on a monthly topic delivered straight to your inbox from 18Doors including essays by other couples, recipes, cheat sheets and conversation starters to discuss with your partner.
  • Participate in quarterly virtual discussions and monthly meetups with other couples to share your own questions and hear how others are navigating the beginning of married life.
  • Be empowered to talk about spirituality/traditions/religion with your partner.
  • Access support from an experienced 18Doors Rukin Rabbinic Fellowship Rabbi.

Cost: $54 (per couple) to participate for the entire year-long series.
Couples can join Our Year of Firsts anytime.
