Interfaith

When we speak about "interfaith" at The Temple, we think of three main categories. The first are those in interfaith or multi-faith relationships, whether dating, married or partnered, with or without children. The second are those who are figuring out how to be supportive parents or grandparents to their children are dating, married, or partnered in interfaith relationships. The third are those who converted to Judaism and whose extended family, likely identifying outside of the Jewish faith, will be a part of their Jewish life and life cycle moments. 

We are proud of the diversity of our Temple, due in large part to the variety of couples and families who decide to make their spiritual home here.  A good portion of our families identify as interfaith or multi-faith, but the moniker is not what is important to us. In everything we do, we seek to create a warm and welcoming environment in which couples and families can experience Judaism, regardless of “family make up.” 

Our Interfaith Committee seeks to create opportunities for connection and education and, along with our Engagement Team and our clergy, want to help you find others who are making similar journeys. If you have questions about interfaith at The Temple or our conversion program, please contact Rabbi Loren Filson Lapidus or our Interfaith Committee co-chairs, Martin Maslia and Amy Lettes  to start the conversation.

Please join us for our upcoming programs sponsored by our Interfaith Committee.
