Love and Religion: An Interfaith Workshop for Jews and Their Partners

Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. This workshop offers you a safe environment to work on creating your religious lives together. You can make Jewish choices while honoring the traditions of both partners. InterfaithFamily/DC and the JCC of Northern Virginia are now pleased to offer Love and Religion: An Interfaith Workshop for Jews and Their Partners, created by Marion L. Usher, Ph.D. facilitated by InterfaithFamily/DC Director, Rabbi Sarah Tasman.

Love and Religion sessions will meet Feb. 2, 9 and 16 in Arlington at 1881 N. Nash Street (1 block from the Rosslyn metro) plus a Shabbat Dinner to be scheduled by participants. Time 7pm.
Fee: The cost is $140 per couple.

You can learn more and watch a short video about the workshop at 

Couples should participate if they are dating, engaged or newly married, exploring the issue of religion in their relationship, and:
· Want to have a religious life and are unclear how to discuss this issue with each other;
· Want to be with other couples who are struggling with the same issues;
· Want answers to their questions about religious life together, including: Where can we find Jewish clergy to marry us? Can our children be Jewish if my partner does not convert? What does a conversion require? How can we respect both our religions”? How can we approach our parents to help us with these dilemmas? Can our children go to Hebrew school if they are not converted at birth?
