Ahavat ger, welcoming the stranger, is among the most important tenets of Reform Judaism. We welcome interfaith families into our communities and encourage their participation in our congregations. Congregation Emeth warmly welcomes interfaith families and non-Jews who are interested in Judaism to find a spiritual connection in our community.

Approximately half of our membership belongs to an interfaith family. Some are non-Jews who want to explore or study or convert to Judaism; others are supportive partners of Jews. Our non-Jewish members are enthusiastic participants in a wide range of activities at Congregation Emeth, including committee and board leadership roles, educational programs, social activities, and religious services.

We understand that interfaith issues impact entire families and pose challenges created by differing religions and cultures. We are here to serve as a resource for you and as a place to meet other interfaith families.
