Review for Interfaithfamily Com Inc, Newton, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When my now wife (Fernanda) and I met, I immediately knew that I had found 'the one,” but that being of different religions would add a challenge to our future that I was unsure we could overcome. Neither of us had ever considered choosing a partner or raising a family in a religion different from our own before we met each other. When we started dating, I felt as is if the butterflies of excitement in my stomach were simultaneously tying knots of worry. InterfaithFamily/Philadelphia was not only the first resource I found for helping us explore our budding interfaith relationship, it was by far the best. IFF’s Love and Religion workshop for interfaith couples helped us push beyond the fears and biases that had previously dominated our conversations and allowed us reach the depth that we needed to be able to build a truly solid foundation for a marriage and eventually a family. Initially I had naively hoped the IFF/Philadelphia Director Rabbi Robyn Frisch would just tell us the answers for how to make it work, and while I immediately learned that it could never be that simple, she and IFF did far more for us than I had ever hoped -- they taught us how to figure out those answers for ourselves. - Michael V
