LARCHMONT TEMPLE DIGNITY OF DIFFERENCE SERIES

For the program year 2019-20, the Larchmont Temple has named it the year of the "Dignity of Difference". As part of this initiative, the fourth Friday of each month has been set aside as Celebrating the Sacred Other.  On Friday, October 25 , our congregation has been invited (up to 50 of us) to join the temple’s congregation for a Shabbat family-style dinner and conversation at 6:30, followed by Shabbat worship at 8:00pm. During worship, Carol will be given 15 minutes to highlight and share key aspects of our worship tradition and spiritual practice that will engender dialogue and shared discovery. This is a very exciting opportunity for us as part of the drive among Larchmont-Mamaroneck clergy to strengthen our interfaith ties as we learn from each other. 

A sign-up sheet for this event will be in the church mid-September. Any questions, please speak with Carol or Tami.
