I'm Jewish My Partner Isn't'I'm Jewish My Partner Isn't' offers mixed-faith couples the opportunity to talk about their situation, discuss any issues that they may be facing and to explore the various options open to them. Entry is for anyone, whether or not they're synagogue members and is for both the Jewish and non-Jewish partners alike.

This seminar was the brain-child of Rabbi Dr Jonathan Romain and has been running for over 20 years. In its early days Rabbi Romain's pioneering work was recognised for addressing a very real life situation for thousands of British Jews - this work is as relevant today as it was then. With rapidly increasing numbers of Jews finding love with someone outside of 'the tribe' we know how important it is to create a non-judgemental space where people can talk, share, listen, explore, question, off-load, laugh and meet other people with similar views.
