Generation Interfaith: How Interfaith Families are Changing the Religion Landscape

Brookville Multifaith Campus, 2 Brookville Road, Brookville, NY 11545         March 20,2016 11:15 am - 12:00


The Interfaith Community of Long Island proudly welcomes Susan Katz Miller, author of Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family.  Miller will speak on “Generation Interfaith: How Interfaith Families are Changing the Religion Landscape.”  Anyone interested, including past, present and potential Interfaith Community members, is welcome to attend this thought-provoking talk.

Miller’s extensive career in journalism has taken her all over the world writing for publications which include Newsweek, the New York Times and The Christian Science Monitor.  She founded the first blog devoted to interfaith family communities and interfaith identity, beingboth.com, blogs for Huffington Post Religion, and was a columnist for the Jewish Daily Forward. As an interfaith families expert, she has appeared on PBS, CBS, NBC’s The Today Show, and several NPR programs.


Miller, who is both an interfaith child and an interfaith parent, also served as Board Co-Chair of the Interfaith Families Project (IFFP) in Washington DC.  IFFP is similar to the Interfaith Community of Long Island in that they both provide supportive spiritual communities which celebrate and teach about both Jewish and Christian traditions.


The Interfaith Community of Long Island calls The Brookville Multifaith Campus home, a unique place where Jews (The New Synagogue of Long Island), Christians (The Brookville Church), and Muslims (The Muslim Reform Movement) each maintain their own religious identity while promoting cross-cultural understanding, peace, and a commitment to service.


After the lecture there will be an open house for Interfaith couples and families interested in joining The Interfaith Community of Long Island. In addition, Reverend Vicky Eastland of the Brookville Church and Rabbi Stuart Paris of The New Synagogue of Long Island will  be there to answer questions relating to interfaith ceremonies, premarital counseling or other inquiries.
