Sponsored by the West Park Interfaith Council, it will be held at Beth Israel -- The West Temple, 14308 Triskett Road. All are welcome to this 90-minute event. An optional discussion with Rabbi Lader and interfaith clergy is included. A free will offering will be taken to cover meal costs, with remaining funds going to The Bread Basket, a local food pantry.
