Auburn has put together resources for you this week that help you track the top news stories for your work to trouble the waters and heal the world in your community. This week Jews around the world celebrate Simchat Torah, rejoicing of the Torah. And we think ahead to World Communion Sunday and International Day of Nonviolence, both celebrated next week. Here’s how Auburn can be a resource to help you plan your week.
In the Religious Calendar: The conclusion of Sukkot brings Simchat Torah, the celebration of the Torah. It’s a moment to look to God’s law and rejoice and challenge us to go further in our work in healing the world. Click here to listen to Auburn’s Religious Leader of the Week, Rabbi Sharon Brous. Auburn invites you to turn to the power of Jewish documentary film as a resource to bring compelling stories to your community. Click here for the best in Jewish documentary film.
And on October 2nd, Christians worldwide come together for World Communion Sunday and experience how this sacrament brings unity and reconciliation.
