Neighbor to Neighbor Interfaith Coalition


We Love ALL Our Neighbors
Display your “neighborly love,” with this sign created by our Neighbor to Neighbor Interfaith Partnership.  The Neighbor to Neighbor partnership includes Temple Isaiah, Lafayette-Orinda Presbyterian Church and the San Ramon Valley Islamic Center.  TI member and artist Lin Teichman created the sign so we could share publicly a modern response to the Torah’s charges of love your neighbor and showing compassion for the strangers in our midst. The sign can be placed in the window of your home, or have it laminated, add a stake and display it on your front lawn.  The signs will be available at our Shabbat service this Friday night and at the Temple in the weeks to come.  One sign per family please.  You may want to bring it with you to the Women’s March on
Saturday. We will bring some signs to our Shabbat service at Civic Park which will precede the March activities.

Upcoming Events:

Neighbor to Neighbor Shabbat of Solidarity
Next Friday, March 24 at 8pm in the Sanctuary

Let’s Show Up for One Another!
 
Over the past several weeks, the rise in anti-Semitic incidents has raised serious concerns in Jewish communities across our nation.  Our leadership at Temple Isaiah has partnered with local and national organizations to institute additional safety measures on our campus, additional education for our students and parents, and outreach to law enforcement, government officials and school administrators. We have also been very gratified by the outpouring of support from our local interfaith partners through our Neighbor to Neighbor program who assure us we are not alone as we push back against ugly expressions of bigotry.
       
At our Shabbat service on March 24, we will stand together as Jews shoulder-to-shoulder with people of all faiths to decry anti-Semitism and declare - together - that we are working toward zero-tolerance for actions against minority or vulnerable groups—in our neighborhoods, in our schools, and in our workplaces.  Our Sabbath of peace and solidarity will be a non-partisan time of worship and uplift, with clergy and laity from many traditions, as a re-affirmation of our deeply-held values of love and respect for all peoples.  Let us declare that we love ALL our neighbors and will show up always to keep each other safe and secure.
       
After the service Temple Isaiah will host a dessert reception to enable our neighbors of different faiths to get to know one another.  Please join us and invite your friends and neighbors of all faiths.
