Interfaith Service Day
Thursday, August 8th 2019
Join visiting Jewish, Muslim, and Christian youth from Israel and Palestine for an interfaith day of service.  New Haven Green, Thursday August 8th, 8:00 a.m.
Dear Friends,
Awaken the divine spark and join me, on August 8th, for a day of celebratory purpose, serving one another as peacemakers.  I know it’s a Thursday, I know it may be hot, and some of you will have to take a day off from work.  But we have pizza, we have good cheer, and the cause is a good one, worthy of a day away from our jobs.  So join us, as Jews, Christians, and Muslims together.., and bring anyone else who cares to see how good it can be when all of us work together.   We have numerous volunteer opportunities, young and old, everyone can help.  Bring your youth groups, bring your children, meet our volunteers from Israel and Palestine, the Jerusalem Peace Builders, and let’s have a good time on August 8th.  See details below.
Yours in peace and friendship,
Bruce A. Barrett
