  • IFFPThe Interfaith Families Project of Greater Washington (IFFP) is an independent community of interfaith families and others. We are committed to sharing, learning about, and celebrating our Jewish and Christian traditions.

    Now in our third decade, we have grown to over 100 families from Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. It’s a place where both Jewish and Christian partners can feel like equal members of the community; where both can celebrate and learn about both faiths and where we “teach not preach.”

    Note: The language in these prayers, songs, texts, poems might not connect to you. We invite you to change the language if you need to make it work for you. For example, If you don’t connect to God language, feel free to change it to Universal Love or Nature.

  • Blessing for the Evening

    Praised are you Adonai, Spirit of the world who shares with humanity the rhythm of the day, bringing the twilight and opening the gates of the heavens.

    Your wisdom has set the changing of the times and the varying of the seasons. We marvel at the stars in the sky.

    You have created the day and the night, rolling away the light before the dark and the dark from before the light.

    The day is divided from night that we may behold the changes of Your world.

    Your enduring guidance leads us forever.

    Praised are you, Adonai who brings forth the mantle of evening.

  • Ahavat OlamFrom ever you have loved us into life, nourished our forebears with teachings of kindness. In the same way you will help us find our path, and we will always rejoice as we come to understand your Torah and mitzvot. For they are our lives, the thread through all our days, guiding us day and night. Your love will never depart from us. Blessed are you who relates to us in love.

  • Ve’Ahafta (Debbie Friedman)

    Deuteronomy 6:5-9

    “And you shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your might. And all these words which I command you on this day, shall be in your heart (2x). And you shall teach them diligently unto your children. And you shall speak of them when you’re sitting in your house, when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up (2x). And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house, and upon your gates (2x). That you may remember and do all of my commandments, and be holy unto your God (3x).”

  • Mi Chamocha ִמי ָכֹמָכה What other power is like this one? What can transcend like holiness, awesomely powerful, working wonders? We experienced that power as the sea split before Moses. 'This is my God!' we exclaimed, ‘Majesty transcends all time and space!’ This is why it is said: Jacob was rescued from battling his brother, a peril he could not overcome himself. Praised are you, source of miracles, redeemer of Israel.

    Blow the shofar when the moon is hidden, at the beginning of the month; for that is the time of our holiday. It is the law for Yisrael, that this be a day of sacred judgment.

  • Amidah (English)May Adonai open my lips as we speak these blessings.

    Bless the compassion and the truth that has sustained generations. Guide of Abraham and Sarah; guide of Isaac and Rachel; guide of Rachel, Leah, and Jacob—profound, abundant, awesome, filling all dimensions and worlds; the highest power, source of all loving deeds; honoring the courage of ancestors, and enabling that courage to inspire generations toward redemption, in love, for that is its nature. May we be renewed, and written into life, for that is the desire of the source of all life. Blessed is the compassion that shielded Abraham and strengthened Sarah.

    Compassion’s might has no limit: sustaining the living with kindness, lovingly bringing life to the lifeless; stirring us to lift the fallen, heal the sick, free the bound, and keeping faith even with those who sleep in the dust. Who is like this source of mercy, binding its children into life, in mercy. Always it is the faithful source of life. Blessed is the compassion that fills matter with living spirit.

  • Contemplative Amidah (by Jhos Singer)

    AVOT

    Draw your ancestors to mind—genetic or spiritual. Thank them for that portion of your heritage which you love, and forgive them for any pain. Now see yourself as the ancestor (genetic or spiritual) of generations to come. Accept their gratitude and forgiveness.

    16

  • Contemplative Amidah (by Jhos Singer)

    GEVUROT

    Focus on your breath. Breathe in life, breathe out life. Now contemplate yourself as the breath of HaShem (God). Your life in this world is HaShem breathing in; your life beyond this world is HaShem breathing out. There is no living or dying, there is only breath. Breathe in, breathe out.

    17

  • Contemplative Amidah (by Jhos Singer)

    KEDUSHA

    Focus on the question: What is holiness? And then: In what way am I holy?And then: What is holy about my name? And then: What is holy about my actions?Contemplate how God would respond to these same questions.

    18

  • Contemplative Amidah (by Jhos Singer)

    HODEH

    Conjure up a moment in your life for which you are grateful. Hold it in your mind. As other thoughts arise, simply accept and release them, and return to your moment of gratitude.

    21

  • Contemplative Amidah (by Jhos Singer)

    SHALOM

    Tense your left hand and arm, the side of judgment and force. Make it as tight as you can. Now touch your left arm with your right hand, the side of compassion and loving kindness. Let your left arm relax as your right arm cradles it. Contemplate loving kindness blanketing all your hard judgements. Stay mindful that in this process, as in all else, you are a reflection of the divine.

  • AleinuIt is our duty to acknowledge the single true source, to shout out praise for the works of creation. We honor, thank, and pledge ourselves to the Blessed Holiness that spreads out the heavens, whose generosity upholds everything on earth. So we hope—how we hope!—that the many gods of divisiveness and distortion, of pride and destruction— all the sad broken pieces of the whole—find their way back into the single vessel of life, that the world may be repaired. We hold on to this vision, despite history, in the face of despair, because one day the whole world will acknowledge the divine.On that day, all will understand the unity.

  • Mourner’s Kaddish (English)Everything becomes fuller and increases in holiness, here in this intentionally created world.

    May we and everyone around us be able to see this, every day of our lives, and may we see it soon.Amen.

    May this holiness, whatever we name it,be blessed in this world and in any other world that might be. Holiness is growing, it is transcendent, it is wonderful, it is always reaching higher, it goes far beyond any prayer or praise or comfort that can be offered in any world. Amen.

    May a heavenly peace come into our lives and those of all people. Amen.

    May the harmony that prevails in the heavens guide us and all people to peace. Amen.

  • If We Only Have Love

    If we only have loveThen tomorrow will dawnAnd the days of our yearsWill rise on that mornIf we only have loveTo embrace without fearsWe will kiss with our eyesWe will sleep without tearsIf we only have loveWith our arms open wideThen the young and the oldWill stand at our sideIf we only have loveLove that's falling like rainThen the parched desert earthWill grow green again

    If we only have loveFor the hymn that we shoutFor the song that we singThen we'll have a way outIf we only have loveWe can reach those in painWe can heal all our woundsWe can use our own namesIf we only have loveWe can melt all the gunsAnd then give the new worldTo our daughters and sonsIf we only have loveThen Jerusalem standsAnd then death has no shadow…
