The Interfaith Working Group builds relationships with other non-Jewish faith based congregations and leaders in the Durham and Orange County area. We also are Beth El’s liaison with Durham Congregations in Action (DCIA).
In the past we have focused on building relationships with mosques in the Durham area, including one time and ongoing co-learning activities. We have also worked with Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Church so that our time there is more about relationship building and not just a use of space.
We also arrange for tours of the synagogue and information sessions about Judaism for school and church groups that request them.
We welcome your participation in our group and your additional ideas. We meet every couple of months in the evening, and the rest of our work is done by volunteers working in between meetings.
If you would like to join the group, or just be on our mailing list, please contact Manny Spira.
