Congregation BJBE and Third Baptist Church of Chicago will bring our two faith communities together to share in prayer, music and fellowship for Shabbat Services on Friday November 22nd, at 7:30 pm. This will be our 5th exchange between our two interfaith communities. In addition to worshipping together, in order to expand and deepen our relationship we are forming delegations from both congregations to participate in an interfaith mission in May to explore Israel together, strengthen ties, mutual respect and a love of learning.
