A Program Evaluation of the American Jewish Committee's Houston Chapter Interfaith Couples Workshop: A Program for Resolving Religious Issues for Jewish-Christian Couples

By Kevin Corcoran, Paul R. Raffoul

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1989

This 1988 research project was designed to evaluate the impact of the American Jewish Committee's Houston Chapter Interfaith Couples Workshop. Building on responses from 64 of the Workshop's participants, the findings of this evaluation are somewhat limited. It is apparent from the results that the main areas of dispute have to do with the way in which the couples want their children raised, with about half insisting that their children be raised Jewish, and around 25% willing to have them raised as both Jews and Christians. Aside from this topic, most couples report having a rather happy life, and that the workshops have proven to be "somewhat" to "very" helpful.
