Love & Religion: An Interfaith Workshop for Jews and their Partners
October, 17, 24, 31 and November 7, 7:30-9:00 PM
Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you don’t need to find the answers alone. For 20 years our four-session workshop has been a model to guide couples in openly discussing issues they face as partners from two different backgrounds.

We offer you a safe environment to work on creating your religious lives together. You can make Jewish choices while still respecting your partner’s religion. Be part of our ever-expanding interfaith community.
Facilitator:  Marion Usher Ph.D.

Introduction to Judaism
Wednesdays, October 18 – December 13, (skip November 22 for Thanksgiving), 7:30 – 9:15 PM

Come explore the rich fabric of Judaism! Using traditional texts and modern examples, we will cover the fundamentals of Jewish life, including Shabbat and holidays, prayer, lifecycle rituals, ethics, and beliefs.
This class is ideal for learners with questions—whether you've never studied Judaism before in your life, you're looking for a Hebrew School refresher, or you're somewhere in between!
