LA 2020 01 - Love and Religion

"Love and Religion" January 2020 - Los Angeles

Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. This workshop offers a safe environment to work on creating your lives together.  It is intended for seriously dating, engaged and newly married interfaith couples to talk about how to have religious/cultural traditions in their lives together.

 

InterfaithFamily is pleased to offer "Love and Religion", a four-session workshop based on Love and Religion: An Interfaith Workshop for Jews and Their Partners, created by Marion L. Usher, Ph.D.

 

"Love and Religion" – meets 4 Sunday evenings, January 12, 19, 26 and either February 2 or 9, as determined by the participants and facilitator from 3:00 - 4:30 pm.  The workshop will be facilitated by InterfaithFamily Rukin Rabbinic Fellow Rabbi Max Chaiken. We will meet at Congregation Kol Ami, 1200 N La Brea Avenue, West Hollywood, CA 90038. Parking available on site. The cost of the workshop is $50/couple.

 

Couples should participate if they are seriously dating, engaged or newly married, exploring the issue of religion in their relationship, and:

  • want to explore questions about their life together, including: How can we honor both of our heritages? Can we raise our children in one religion while exposing them to the other one? How will we celebrate holidays and lifecycle events? How can we talk to parents and other relatives about issues related to our interfaith relationship?
  • want to discuss and begin to make decisions about their religious/spiritual/cultural life together with support from other couples and a non-judgmental facilitator
  • want guidance from a facilitator who has experience working with interfaith couples and helping them to address actual and potential challenges particular to them
  • want to get to know and develop relationships with other interfaith couples who are thinking about similar issues
