Are YOU a Fiddler on the Roof? Interfaith relationships and marriages continue to rise. Those of us involved in these relationships often find ourselves struggling with inherited religious traditions and how to integrate them into our lives and the lives of our children. In this sense, we are all “fiddlers on the roof” trying to find our footing. In the process, we can become defensive, isolated, or confused. Ironically, the antidote lies in developing, not avoiding, authentic spiritual relationships with our partners and with others. Doing so has the potential to profoundly enrich our lives. For over 20 years, I’ve helped hundreds of people celebrate and balance their spiritual lives by actively embracing interfaith opportunities.
“Dear Lauren, We wanted to thank you for the fantastic ceremony you helped K and B create. We loved your style, your spontaneity and your way of celebrating them. I can tell you that everyone loved what you did. We are particularly happy that B and K have a relationship with you as they forge their new life and their own traditions. Your perspective and objectivity has been helpful to them and surely will remain so, in the future.” - September 2011, Parents of the groom
