COVID-19 UPDATE

IFFP will be meeting VIRTUALLY ONLY on January 9th, 2022. Please read our COVID-19 Prevention Protocols here. See the calendar for details about our Gatherings, Adult Groups, and Sunday School.

Our offices are closed until further notice.

 

Welcome!

The Interfaith Families Project of Greater Washington (IFFP) is an independent community of interfaith families and others. We are committed to sharing, learning about, and celebrating our Jewish and Christian traditions.

 

Now in our third decade, we have grown to over 100 families from Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. It’s a place where both Jewish and Christian partners can feel like equal members of the community; where both can celebrate and learn about both faiths and where we “teach not preach.” 

IFFP Welcomes YOU!  Please click to view our community inclusion statement.
