Interfaith Families of Greater Philadelphia
The Interfaith Families Project of Greater Philadelphia is modeled after and in partnership with the very successful IFFP of Greater Washington D.C. Our core value is respect -- for each other, for Judaism, and for Christianity. We strive to create a community that will celebrate, explore, question, and enjoy both religious traditions equally.
We ask that you neither reject your religious backgrounds nor seek a new religion that is a mixture of Christian and Jewish belief. Instead, we believe it is possible -- and desirable -- to honor our distinct religious traditions and to share those traditions with spouses, partners and children.
Our community welcomes those who continue to practice a faith and those who do not. We welcome parents who have chosen not to select one religion for their children, but rather to instill in them an appreciation and understanding of both heritages. Our community also welcomes parents who have chosen one religion for their children but want them to gain knowledge about both of their cultural heritages.
