Religious Education in an Interfaith Family


Susan Katz Miller, author Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family (2013), will be the guest at RFPUSA’s March 27th webinar at 3PM ET. Sign up Here!

Her well-received book delves what into what happens when you grow up as the child of parents of different faiths. Then what happens when you yourself fall in love and commit yourself to someone who identifies religiously as other than you? And when the children arrive, how are they raised?

Katz Miller’s book explores these issues and is reviewed in this issue of TIO. Her November 19, 2013 article in Religion Dispatches, “Who Says the “Partly Jewish” Are Bad for the Jews?” is also here.

Traditional ‘wisdom’ for religious education in interfaith families has been that the children should be raised with one tradition. Being Both suggests a thoroughly interfaith approach to raising your family, one that is rigorous and demanding, and can provide untold benefits for everyone involved.

Join us on March 27th at 3PM ET on a live video webinar through Google Hangouts on Air to hear from Susan Katz Miller and ask your own questions.
