Together in Faith, Together in Heart: An Interfaith Exploration of Jewish and Christian Wisdom

Sun, Sep 26, 2021 • 1:00 PM2:00 PM


It is common to view these two faiths as walled off, unrelated enterprises. Differences in ideology, scriptural language, and practice often makes us think of Judaism and Christianity as independent traditions.

But all faiths are human faiths, and there are many connections between these strands. Christianity started as a reform movement in Judaism and many aspects of Jewish practice and belief were re-contextualized in the formation of Christianity. This gathering aims to explore the commonalities and differences, hopefully guiding us toward fresh ideas to animate us as faith seekers and keep both traditions relevant to our lives.

All are welcome to join a bi-weekly study of Jewish and Christian traditions and texts, facilitated by Mark Gilman (son of CRS Congregant Maxine Borowitz), and featuring offerings from Rabbi Ben Spratt and Reverend Micah Bucey of Judson Memorial Church.

Come join us for an open-hearted study, where we will share our personal experiences and beliefs, along with textual study to guide us. This is a space for anyone, of any community or tradition. We will meet every other Sunday, from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM, via Zoom, and we look forward to learning from your own wisdom and building collective wisdom together.
