Interfaith Conversations: free series

Jewish Family Services of Greenwich will sponsor Interfaith Conversations, a program giving individuals and families a place to explore the opportunities and challenges associated with interfaith living.

JFS says that it believes these “wide-ranging discussions enable interfaith couples to experience their religious differences as a source of strength and growth.”

Interfaith Conversations brings together people who have an interfaith life experience and wish to explore their creative opportunities.

For adults in interfaith relationships, being knowledgeable about, and appreciative of, their own and their partner’s religion can be important to their ongoing relationship, and critical to effective, respectful parenting.

Individuals will also learn practical skills to help navigate the challenges of interfaith living.

The next conversation will be held on Monday, Sept. 8, at a private residence in Greenwich.

Topics covered will address what “being both” really means in a marriage and family; how to manage goals, expectations, and concerns; how to incorporate life cycle rituals such as baptism or Bar/Bat Mitzvah and understanding spouses’ traditions.

This program is sponsored by Jewish Family Services of Greenwich. RSVPs are required for this free program; donations are welcome.

If you are interested in this initiative or know of a family who may be interested, contact Lisa Smith, LCSW, executive director of Jewish Family Services, at 203-622-1881 or [email protected]
