Where do we relate to the Jewish Community? How do I find ways to keep a connection to my traditions and my people?
Whether you are the Jewish or non-Jewish spouse in an interfaith marriage, we are available to talk to you and also offer counseling and information for your particular circumstance.
Intermarriage does not mean a Jew is no longer Jewish. We understand the unique challenges presented to those involved in interfaith relationships.
We can also help you find answers related to Judaism: Jewish weddings, Jewish customs, Jewish culture, Jewish traditions and Jewish beliefs. We also offer local programs and seminars.
We can help address:
- > "Finding Spiritual Balance in Relationships," where interfaith couples who desire clarity to core issues in their life, explore how "Spiritual Balance" offers answers in a world of moral relativism.
- > A second session, "Why Jews can't believe in Jesus," addresses one of the most perplexing questions for interfaith couples.
What are the two roads?
The First Road is Kindness, as it states: “The Beginning and the end of the entire Torah is loving-kindness".
The Second Road is Respect, as it states: "Love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD".
