Thursday, November 5, 2020 18 Cheshvan 5781

It may seem that we are more polarized than ever, but the Christian and Jewish faiths teach us that we are all neighbors deserving of love and respect. Join Reverend Johnie Jones, Executive Director of Bread of Life, and Rabbi Steven Morgen as they discuss the commandment to “love your neighbor” and the Parable of the Good Samaritan in the New Testament from the perspective of each of our traditions.

Thank you to the Boniuk Institute of Rice University  and Interfaith Ministries of Houston for co-sponsoring our program!

                              


Open to the community!

As we expect many non-Beth Yeshurun members to join us, we ask you to register directly in Zoom.
