Interfaith Families



interfaith family


The prophet Isaiah said: “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” (Isaiah 56:7)

CSOA welcomes everyone in our community. If a CSOA member is Jewish and others in her or his household are not Jewish, all of them are welcome to be involved in our congregation.

CSOA has several households with mixed religious backgrounds. This fact alone suggests what many personally attest to:  interfaith families feel comfortable being part of the Sons of Abraham community.

There are times when the integrity of Jewish tradition puts limits on some participation. This primarily applies to matters of public worship and some leadership roles in the congregation. Our rabbi is always willing to discuss this with you. We encourage you to share your questions or concerns with him or with others in leadership positions here.

A note on wedding officiation and blessings.  Our rabbi looks forward to meeting with all couples considering marriage/unions.  Regardless of officiation, all couples are invited to receive a blessing in anticipation of their marriage/union during a Shabbat service.

Our doors are open. We invite you to make CSOA your spiritual home. We look forward to meeting and getting to know you.
