Episode Info:

LEAPS OF FAITHS is about interfaith (Jewish-Catholic) marriage, with implications for other kinds of intercultural families. In the film, love is tested by faith, and faith is tested by love. A Jew and a Catholic may have grown up looking at the other faith as ‘over there’ or ‘the other’ … but when they fall in love, that’s no longer possible. Now they’re family, and that’s when things get really interesting. 80% of Reform Jews who got married in the last 5 years intermarried, and a majority of American Jews today are partnered with someone of a different cultural or religious background. In a world that can seem increasingly polarized and tribal, interfaith families are crossing borders. LEAPS OF FAITHS is produced by Rhythm & Light for broadcast on WTTW Chicago and streaming platforms. It was an official selection of the JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival where it sold out, and is being considered for other festivals. It’s attracting large audiences at screening and post-discussions in the Chicago area.
