Multi-faith families become increasingly common January 04, 2019
We set the stage with an interview with Susan Katz Miller, author of Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family. When two people of different religions get married, the traditional wisdom from religious institutions have been to pick one tradition to raise the kids in. Otherwise, things get too confusing. But our guest says it's important for both children and parents to have religious literacy across traditions, and that couples shouldn't be afraid to incorporate both faiths into their family life.
