This monthly program is in its 40th year and was originally begun by Father George Balasko and Rabbi Samuel Meyer for the purpose of encouraging fellowship, and improving understanding and acceptance between Christians and Jews.  Rabbi Joseph Schonberger began leading the group with Father Balasko 18 years ago. The group meets the first Wednesday of the month at Temple El Emeth and has grown to include the Hindu, Bahai and Sikh traditions. 

Refreshments are served at 12:30 pm with the session beginning at 1:00 pm.  All are welcome to attend.
