With so much hatred going on in the world right now, it is nice to report on something positive. For almost 20 years, Congregation B’nai Israel, the synagogue in Vallejo, and St Paul’s Episcopal Church in Benicia, have come together at Thanksgiving to hold an interfaith service. The location alternates between the two congregations each year. Tonight, Tuesday, November 24, 2015, at 7:30 p.m., the service will take place at St. Paul’s Church. Over the years, other churches have joined in the service and it is truly an interfaith service. Tonight’s service will also include members of the Islamic Center of Vallejo-Benicia.
The service is open to everyone and it is not necessary to belong to those congregations or any congregation in order to attend. There will be a desert reception following the service. For more information, please download the flyer.
