Susan Katz Miller - Being Both

Thursday, March 20, 2014 - 7:00pm
Susan Katz Miller grew up with a Jewish father and Christian mother, and was raised Jewish. Now in an interfaith marriage herself, she is one of the growing number of Americans who are boldly electing to raise children with both faiths, rather than in one religion or the other (or without religion). In Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family ($25.95), Miller draws on original surveys and interviews with parents, students, teachers, and clergy, as well as on her own journey, to chronicle this controversial grassroots movement.

Being Both is at once a rousing declaration of the benefits of celebrating two religions, and a blueprint for interfaith families who are seeking guidance and community support.

Susan Katz Miller is a former Newsweek reporter and former US correspondent for New Scientist. Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, Conde Nast Traveler, Moment, and other publications. She blogs on interfaith families for Huffington Post and She lives in the Washington, DC, area with her husband and two interfaith teenagers.
