November 2015 is Interfaith Family Month
Interfaith Family Month is an opportunity to highlight interfaith families and thank them for their contributions to our community. In the month of November, we join IFF- the Interfaith Family organization and take some time during our services to offer a blessing or words of thanks to our interfaith participants.
In 2014, over 150 synagogues and organizations in Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia, and the San Francisco Bay Area participated in this exciting program. This year, InterfaithFamily is expanding this program to Atlanta, Los Angeles, and the District of Columbia.
In the past, IFF has called this time of appreciation and gratitude for the interfaith couples and families in Jewish communities “InterfaithFamily Shabbat.” Because of the overall enthusiasm and positive response IFF had to its 2014 expansion, the name was changed to reflect this month-long celebration.
