IFFP cares for our interfaith community.

Together, we provide support through to individuals and families through the IFFP Care Team. Our Members and Staff compile resources to help interfaith families.

Our Tikkun Olam Groups seek to heal the world, and our clergy care for families by conducting baby welcomings and weddings. We care for our growing children and teens through the Coming of Age program.

IFFP Care Team

IFFP has always strived to be a community that takes good care of one another: whether it be providing meals for someone who is ill, sharing joys and concerns during Gatherings, or visiting one another after a major life event. Through the years, IFFP clergy and community members alike have found ways to be present for one another during challenging times, life transitions, and happy milestones. We formalized this essential aspect of IFFP through the creation of the IFFP Care Team.

The IFFP Care Team is made up of Clergy and Members who support the needs of our community. Email the Care Team.
