New York City

The New York City chapter offers programs in Manhattan and Brooklyn. It is the oldest chapter of the Interfaith Community, tracing its origins to the informal community of 1987 which became the basis for today’s multi-location, professional organization. It is a multi-generational community, ranging from founding members and their adult children to new members who are dating couples. Members are from all five boroughs and beyond. While most programs are offered on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, programs are also offered in Brooklyn and in other locations. For more information, email:

In-Person & Online Panel Discussion:
Interfaith Marriage and Parenting


Date and time TBA

Email us to be notified of the date and time when it is scheduled.


Based on the Interfaith Community’s pioneering model for Jewish-Christian families who wish to support both traditions, this panel discussion will include celebrating holidays, wedding and baby ceremonies, educating children and more. Fresh from the “collision” of Hanukkah and Christmas — and in the spirit of the new year! —  Interfaith Community members want to reflect on the holidays and explore their issues.  


Join us in-person or through video in an informal discussion group, focusing on interfaith marriage and parenting for Jewish/Christian couples.
