Review for Interfaithfamily Com Inc, Newton, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Interfaith Family, more than any other Jewish non-profit I have run across, understands interfaith family issues and offers meaningful support to interfaith couples, their children, and extended family members. They recognize the unique needs of adults raised in interfaith households. It is very rare to find a group both welcoming and understanding of the "half-Jewish" demographic. This is a truly outstanding organization. My specific experience includes being invited to write about growing up in an interfaith family, and finding the words "half-Jewish" and "growing up in an interfaith family" mentioned in IFF discussions and articles. They include discussions of interracial family dynamics as well. I've received a lot of emotional support and encouragement. One of the editors even mailed me a book she thought I would be interested in. I hope they continue to recognize, learn about, and provide support to people like myself who come from interfaith homes, as our issues tend to be very different from those of our parents (the interfaith couples.)

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Realizing that I am not alone.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Suggest that they do more to educate the general public about interfaith family issues.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Having a place to share my experiences and be heard.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very kind, helpful, supportive, and understanding.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Hopefully organize support groups or educational programs tailored to the needs of adult children of intermarriage.

Ways to make it better...

More were being done to show that children of interfaith marriage are - or can be - considered Jewish and welcomed into Jewish life if that is their choice.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Like all such organizations, lack of adequate funding is probably their biggest hurdle.
