Life can get pretty complicated.
Marriage. Children. Religious choices. For an interfaith family, each of these major events comes with new challenges. jHUB was founded to provide a new way for interfaith couples and families to comfortably explore, discover and personalize the meaning of Jewish culture and values in the modern world. You are not alone. We are here to help you navigate life’s challenges in a comfortable place — at your own pace.
jHUB Offers Something for Everyone
Make it official
We’re happy to introduce you to local clergy who officiate weddings, partnerships, and counsel interfaith couples.
Pull up a chair at our table
The best advice comes from sharing experiences. We host a number of casual get-togethers for interfaith couples and families to get to know one another in a relaxed environment where they can share with one another over some good food and drink.
Celebrate the holidays
The holidays are a time for families to come together. And, we have free opportunities to learn about and celebrate a number of holidays. Our Hanukkah in a box, for example, is a simple way to introduce Jewish culture in an interfaith home.
So … how is this going to work?
Every family is different. But, every interfaith family can relate to some common challenges. Come to one of our couples’ workshops and connect with new friends who are navigating some of the same issues that you may be facing.
Stop, drop … Shabbat
Looking for other families with whom you can celebrate the Sabbath? We offer a wide variety of activities from meal planning to crafts for your children. It’s a time to pause and reflect. We make it easy for busy people to do just that. Interested in hosting your own Shabbat dinner or being hosted? Let's do Shabbat!
They didn’t teach this in my school
Are you an interfaith parent looking for a crash course in Jewish culture and customs? Whether you were raised with Judaism or not, all questions are good questions. Raise your hand and ask away in a comfortable environment. We are a great resource for parents looking to take a more active role in their children’s Jewish upbringing.
Bubbe or Nonna?
Meet with other grandparents to learn skills for navigating family relationships in the context of multiple backgrounds and traditions.
