This study of the workshops for interfaith couples sponsored by the San Francisco Jewish community finds that the groups have the potential to increase the Jewish involvement of these couples. However, the issues of neutrality, group focus, participant selection, and the choice and training of group leaders must be further assessed and refined if the groups are to be more effective in both helping interfaith couples make workable life choices and serving as a bridge to the Jewish community.
