Author, scholar, and psychologist Dr. Marion Usher will offer a presentation and lead a discussion on the joys and challenges of interfaith relationships.
“We realize that many Beth El families, as well as others in the Northeast Kingdom, are comprised of interfaith partnerships. Beth El Synagogue is bringing Dr. Usher to our community to support the success of these families," according to Jill Minkoff, Beth El Board Member. "Whether you are in an interfaith family or just want to understand more and be supportive of those that are, this evening of activities will be meaningful.”
