Interfaith Encounters: Exploring Interreligious and Intercultural Relations and Culture
September 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Whether you are a follower of a faith tradition or have no faith, La Convivencia invites you to participate in its series of Interfaith Encounters. Interfaith Encounters is an opportunity to meet and experience other faith traditions or those who have no faith through celebration, communication, collaboration, and education. Each month, participate in an activity designed to build bridges among those who follow various faith traditions or have no faith. The activities include visits to houses of worship, guided conversations over dinner and joining together on service projects.
For information on each month’s activity, please visit: http://www.laconvivencia.org/interfaith-encounters.html
Sukkot, or the Festival of Booths, is one of the holidays celebrated by our Jewish brothers and sisters in the fall. The first in La Convivencia’s series of Interfaith Encounters is an exploration of this holiday with a focus on hospitality and the symbolism of the fall harvest. Join us as we learn how this holiday is celebrated and the meaning that it has in the Jewish faith. The program starts at 6:30PM with pizza for teens, followed by a program for teens exploring the theme of hospitality. Adults will join the program at 8:00PM for blessings and discussion.
Location: Congregation Beth Chaim, 329 Village Road East, Princeton Junction, NJ 08550.
