Life’s ironies are not lost on us: When we were children, we longed to hurry and grow up. As adults, we often pine for the simplicity of childhood – free from worries, full of optimism and unbothered by “emotional baggage” we pick up along our journey to maturity journey. The bottom line: Being an adult is challenging.
The upside: JCFS Education and Support Groups for Adults are here for you. JCFS provides professionally led, small discussion groups and workshops on pressing topics that impact adults, from career support to social-skill development.

Love and Religion for Seriously Dating, Engaged or Newly Married Interfaith Couples

October 25, 2015 - November 21, 2015
various days
Being part of an interfaith couple can be challenging, but you don't need to find the answers alone. Join others for good discussions over dinner, coffee, and a web-ex evening to hear about community resources. Topics include the family traditions with which you grew up as well as future religious decision making, including children, extended family and traditions. On the final evening, we will attend Shabbat (sabbath) services at a local congregation, followed by dinner.
