Discussion Series for Interfaith/Intercultural Couples
Interfaith/Intercultural couples often face difficult questions and decisions. Make the process easier by engaging with other couples facing similar concerns. Create an outline of how to approach a conversation with your partner that is honest, caring, and supportive. This discussion series will get the conversations rolling!
Exchange ideas about such issues as:
Holiday Observances – Which holidays will be celebrated in our home?
Dealing With Our Families – How will we talk to our parents about our choices?
Raising Children – How can we make sure our child is “part” of each of us?
Spiritual Concerns – How do we satisfy our needs and recognize our partner’s?
Cultural Differences – How do communication styles and familial expectations impact our relationship?
This is one of the most meaningful and powerful things you can do for your relationship. I encourage every couple to participate in a couples group.
There is a sliding scale. No one will be turned away. Contact Dawn at dawn@buildingjewishbridges for reduced tuition.
