Kicking Us Off

Hello! Welcome! Bienvenue! Bienvenidos! Shalom! Peace be with you!

I’m so excited you’re here! Thanks for joining me on this journey to get to the bottom of interfaith relationships! (kidding… mostly)

What am I using this blog/website for?

I’ll be talking (writing/typing) about the process of creating a product designed to help interfaith couples talk to one another. I’ll include my thoughts and opinions, and know that these are colored by my experiences as an interfaith child and an outspoken member of an interfaith couple.

I may also offer advice. I’ve been there and done that, for at least some of this stuff. I won’t shy away from offering my opinion on what it was like growing up in a household where parents prayed differently (or at least used different labels), how I spent my first Christmas with my boyfriend’s mom (in JFK’s favorite Florida church pew nonetheless), and my thoughts on the institutional Jewish community and how it’s trying to engage with young adults like me. Take it or leave it- I plan to!

I’ll also ask for your help. Please be patient, as this is a process and I’m figuring it out as I go along. Please be kind, as I’m opening my (figurative, and maybe one day literal) home, family, and community to you.

Please be thoughtful, as this can be a touchy subject for many. Lastly, please be active- and let me know what you think!

Shit might get serious, but if relationships based on good communication, mutual respect, and a deep admiration of one other are not documented on the internet- do they even exist? I think not.

So here we go- hope to see you again soon!
