NVHC rejoices in living in a diverse modern world.  We do not, as Jews, live in isolation from the rest of the world nor do we want to.  We are proud to be an inclusive congregation with many interfaith families in our fold.  Our membership includes a large number of non-Jews who are very active in programming throughout the synagogue and we are grateful for their commitment to and interest in deepening their knowledge of Jewish values and culture.

With this in mind we offer “The Bridge,” a program for Interfaith families.  The goal of “The Bridge” is to make NVHC a more welcoming and inclusive place for our non-Jewish partners.  “The Bridge” meets throughout the year; some sessions are exclusively for our non-Jewish members, others are open to any interested member of NVHC.  Topics of discussion have included a High Holy Days “debrief,” the differences between Passover and Easter, and our shared story.  No question is insignificant.  All experiences are meaningful.

NVHC performs interfaith weddings at the discretion of the clergy on a case by case basis.  For more information contact Rabbi Holzman at rabbiholzman@nvhcreston.org.
