Introduction to The Jewish Tradition, November 4 at 9:00 a.m. in Lodi

“Where Can I Go From Your Presence?”
The Jewish Tradition


Our partnership with the Interfaith Peace Project continues this month. Again we will welcome, Fr. Tom Bonacci as our presenter. Last month’s event was a presentation that creatively included elements of teaching, preaching and storytelling. This month’s topic is, “Gleaning from the Jewish Tradition” Fr. Tom offers the following introduction;

For the Christian, Judaism is our Mother in faith and the ways of God.  We are heartbroken over the troubled history of Jews and Christians.  But, now more than ever, we are grateful for the advances made in more recent times between Jews and Christians.  We will explore the splendor of the Hebrew Bible to appreciate anew the wisdom of our Mother in faith. The power of Tradition presented in story, ritual, and remembrance will surge through our consciousness inviting us to praise the God who would liberate us all. Our reflections will conclude by appreciating the Judaism of Jesus. On December 9, we will explore the Islamic Tradition.

A sign up sheet for registration is available on the barrel in the narthex.  There is a ten dollar free will offering.
Copies from last month’s program are also available.

The St. Petersburg Men’s Ensemble is an a capella quartet founded in 2003which includes the talents of Kirill Sokolov, Sergey Shapinskiy, Vadim Smantser, and Andrei Volikov.

This talented group expands the limits of generally accepted perceptions about singing groups and choir performances. The group’s repertoire encompasses various periods and styles—from ancient Russian chants and chorals of Western European masters,to modern, contemporary musical techniques.
