Description:  WTTW and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events presents a free screening and discussion of Leaps of Faiths.

About the film: Love tests faith. Faith tests love. Interfaith marriage - how does that work? What about the in-laws? How to raise the kids? For 30 years, Catholics and Jews in Chicago have found that the answers don't have to be so hard - boundaries can be crossed and divisions healed. And the kids? We follow five who grew up learning both Judaism and Catholicism from 8th grade through high school, college and beyond. Their families imagined possibilities, and discovered them. Alternative WTTW Viewing: Leaps of Faiths will premiere on WTTW11 on Thursday, May 23 at 9:00 -10:00 pm.
