Rabbi Mychal will be leading us in a discussion of interfaith relationships throughout Jewish history and the present challenges and opportunities they pose.

A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
InterfaithFamily and Congregation Sukkat Shalom are hosting an interfaith program at Congregation Sukkat Shalom in Wilmette on Sunday, May 18th from 2:00-3:30pm.

Light refreshments will be served.
