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 (email@example.com) or Danna Mirviss (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
