Center for Learning and Spirituality: Interfaith Programming
Join the Love Your Neighbor Team!
We are building on the relationship that Adath began earlier this year with the Northwest Islamic Community Center.
If you're an Adath congregant who wants to host a family from the Northwest Islamic Community Center for a Shabbat, holiday, or weekday meal, please get in touch with either Anthony Bloch (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Danna Mirviss (email@example.com) and they will help you arrange it. The goal of this initiative is to build upon the foundation that was laid with our previous Love Your Neighbor events by creating personal relationships in the warmth of a home.

Call to Prayer Concert
with National Lutheran Choir, Zafer Tawil and Hazzan Joanna Dulkin
Sunday, Mar 4 • 4 pm
For many, music serves as the impetus for prayer. Following a season of lifting up the art and legacy of the Reformation, the National Lutheran Choir now turns to the sounds and teachings of the world at large, exploring what calls us all to pray. Together with Palestinian singer and multi-instrumentalist Zafer Tawil, and Hazzan Joanna Dulkin, the National Lutheran Choir presents “Call to Prayer,” an afternoon of music from the traditions of the three Abrahamic religions: Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, presented in the Adath Sanctuary. Experience what has inspired, invited, and beckoned God’s people into conversation with the Divine.
