Interfaith Community Boston
Interfaith Community has been an independent voice for Jewish-Christian families since its founding in New York City in 1987. Today, the Interfaith Community provides the resources to meet the real needs of today's religiously-mixed families and couples. Led by the energy and vision of its volunteer members, the Interfaith Community encourages the celebration of the richness and distinctiveness of both Judaism and Christianity.
In March of 2008, the Interfaith Community's Boston chapter began its programing with an open house at St. James's Church in Cambridge, MA. Since then, the chapter has grown to serve over 100 adults and children who have taken part in its holiday celebrations and educational programs.
This year, IFC Boston plans to continue to hold programs for major holidays, including All Saints Day, Hanukkah/Advent, Easter/Passover and Shavuot/Pentecost. If there is enough interest, IFC Boston also hopes to offer a class for children in Kindergarten through 4th Grade beginning this November called "Celebrating our Traditions."
Through these religious services and educational programs for both children and adults, individuals are supported in their own journeys, at their own level of involvement. IFC is not an "ecumenical program", a new amalgam of both traditions, nor does it discourage formal affiliation with a church or synagogue; rather, it is a neutral and affirming place for interfaith families and couples to connect.
