InterfaithInterfaith gathering during Sukkot at B'nai IsraelThe Interfaith Group is a fun, diverse group of friends - individuals, couples, and families who share social, educational and life-cycle events in a way that is inclusive and accessible. Some of the fun things we do throughout the year include:

  • Hosting a break-the-fast on Yom Kippur;
  • Enjoying the annual Hanukkah party at a member's home;
  • Hosting a mock Seder in preparation for Passover;
  • Participating in social action events, from cleaning the American River Parkway to feeding the homeless, to helping at blood drives, and much much more...
  • Bi-monthly discussions with Rabbi Alfi. Topics include how interfaith couples and families navigate marriage & childrearing; religious holidays throughout the year; learning to better understand Hebrew; understanding the cadence of prayer services; among many other insightful topics.
  • Just hanging out with each other at the cafe on a Sunday morning . . . drinking mocha's, noshing on pastries, and schmoozing . . .

We will be assembling a schedule of events over the next few months and we will post these to the website as we complete the schedule.
