About

THE PROJECT:

This project was created by Lea Khayata and Elettra Fiumi as their digital masters project at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism (class of 2011). All the reporting was done from New York City under the supervision of Professor David Klatell and Alan Haburchak. The goal was to document how the support of an organization changes the way interfaith children are raised. The focus was Jewish-Christian upbringing because there are no New York-based organizations similar to the Interfaith Community that cater to other religious combinations.
