Our Mission

  space

IFFP seeks to develop our children, ourselves, and our community through opportunities for education about Christianity and Judaism, holiday celebrations, fellowship, spiritual gatherings, community service, and exploration of interfaith identity in an environment that encourages questions and respects different answers.

Started in 1995, The Interfaith Families Project of Greater Washington (IFFP) is an independent community of interfaith families and others committed to sharing, learning about, and celebrating our Jewish and Christian traditions.

The core value of IFFP is respect–for each other, for Judaism and for Christianity. As a community, we celebrate, explore, question and enjoy both religious traditions. IFFP members neither reject our religious backgrounds nor seek a new religion that is a mixture of Christian and Jewish belief. Instead, we believe it is possible — and desirable — to honor our distinct religious traditions and to share those traditions with spouses, partners and children.
