Did you know that 22% of Americans are intermarried?
With the number of interfaith marriages on the rise, more families are braving new territory and creating alternative family traditions. JFS and the PJ Library invite all members of the interfaith community to participate in this lively, monthly discussion group. Conversations explore the opportunities and challenges associated with interfaith living including such topics as: which holidays to celebrate, dealing with in-laws, finding the right spiritual community, and more. Join us for these thought-provoking Interfaith Conversations.

Here’s what some participants have to say about JFS Support Groups:
“The JFS Bereavement Group helped me get through an extremely difficult time. The sessions were supportive, and I left them with a sense of healing and peace.” –Ms. S., age 45
“I found the JFS Separation & Divorce Group to be of great value. The common bond of facing a new life after major disappointment brought everyone in the group together.” –Ms. M., age 56
“The group facilitator, along with the support from the participants, provided me with the tools to deal with what I was going through. Not only have I changed for the better, but I have developed new friendships that will last for years to come.” –Mr. K, age 48
“I want to thank you for leading us through the desert to the mountain. Life is a journey…happiness and contentment are on that road.” –Mrs. B., age 66
