Character values ​​are important for the Indonesian people, especially in Java. Therefore, parents have a role and responsibility in realizing ethical values ​​to their children. For example, the children's habit of greeting guests when they come to visit is part of the assessment of Javanese manners

However, not all parents have the same background so it is easy to realize the value of children's character. One of the differences in the backgrounds of parents is differences in religion. Although Indonesia is one of the countries that does not legalize interfaith marriage, in fact, there are many interfaith marriages.

Therefore, the aim of this research is to reveal the phenomenon of Javanese Family Communication Beyond the Phenomenology of Religious Life, Ethics, and Human Dignity. This research describes the behavior of individuals of different religions which are manifested in their daily social life by referring to Javanese politeness rules or manners. Social manners and politeness in Java determine the shape of the relationship between humans, determining which movements and language are used to express respect.

In the Javanese mindset and religion regarding human life and life in this realm are not cognitive-experiential in nature. The Javanese mindset does not make an essential definition of “what is life” but is more preoccupied with the problem of "how man reaches jumeneng as ‘tetungguling laku’. The Javanese family behavior system has a cosmic philosophical meaning, the balance between microcosmos and macrocosmos, namely the interrelation of individual and social life between oneself and others.
