The Faith Trio is Kehilla’s alliance with local Muslims and Christians through the Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California and Montclair Presbyterian Church.
The Faith Trio held two Living Room Conversations programs recently in January and February 2019: each with 25 or 26 folks total, including people from each congregation. We broke into small groups of 5 or 6 for respectful and deep conversations, in a structured format. The first “The Way Forward” and the second “Faith in Politics” were appreciated and enjoyed. The third will be in late April or May, at Montclair Presbyterian Church. The topic will be “Politics in Faith Communities”. More information here.
Please look for the announcement and attend. Questions: Steven Falk firstname.lastname@example.org.
In February, 30 people from the Faith Trio congregations plus Temple Sinai in Oakland joined together to volunteer for 2 1/2 hours at the Alameda County Community Food Bank, bagging a variety of vegetables to be distributed to people in need. Thanks very much to those that volunteered: Alex Madonik, Bill Lazarus, Carol Suveda, Dan Alpert, Karen Friedman, Laura Nelson, Lea Delson, Leanne Grossman, and Stephani Lesh, plus all the volunteers and organizers from the other congregations! If you would like to be involved in such efforts later this year, please contact Lea Delson at email@example.com or (510) 528-6725.
Another interfaith project we have engaged in since 2011 is our interfaith art exhibitions. We invite anyone who would like to brainstorm about future directions for our interfaith art exhibitions or would like to be involved in planning or fundraising, to please contact Lea Delson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 528-6725.
