History 1995, four founding moms. IFFP is an independent community of interfaith families and others committed to sharing, learning about, and celebrating our Jewish and Christian traditions. It is the only interfaith organization of its kind in the country.Now in our second decade, we have grown to over 110 families from Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Values Respect
Vision community of families actively sharing faith traditions
Mission to respect each other and celebrate, explore, question and enjoy both religious traditions equally.
Goals not to reject religious backgrounds, nor seek a new religion that is a mixture of Christian and Jewish belief, but to honor the distinct religious traditions and to share those traditions with spouses, partners and children.
Approach the community includes those who continue to practice a faith, and those who do not. Many IFFP parents have chosen not to select one religion for their children, but rather to instill in them an appreciation and understanding of both heritages. Other IFFP parents have chosen one religion for their children but want them to gain knowledge about both of their cultural heritages.The community provides a sense of connection and support that is a valuable part of the experience as an interfaith family.
Structure Staff, Church and membership. IFFP is a member-driven organization. IFFP is self-supporting and financed entirely through annual membership fees, contributions, and Sunday School tuition. Membership is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
