Our Breaking Bread: Breaking Bias Interfaith Potluck event has proven to be a success, transcending the challenges posed by the current events in Israel. In the face of ongoing tensions and conflicts, our unBIASed initiative has served as a powerful beacon of peace, awareness, and community building. Through Breaking Bread, people from diverse religious backgrounds have come together to share a meal, exchange stories, and foster deep connections. This event has not only broken down barriers of bias but has also served as a platform for constructive dialogue and understanding. The commitment of Temple Beth Am to promote unity, tolerance, and harmony shines through Breaking Bread, making it a testament to the potential of interfaith gatherings in promoting peace and a stronger sense of community, even in the most challenging of times.
The event was featured in The Miami Herald. Read a snippet from the article below;
Telling personal stories to bridge the religious differences among people was one of the main goals of “Breaking Bread. Breaking Bias: Interfaith Potluck,” an event organized by Temple Beth Am’s unBIASed Initiative, Mosaic Miami and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Miami. The potluck dinner Sunday night, held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 7701 SW 76th Ave., was part of a new series seeking to build an interfaith community to talk about challenging issues.
“We try to bring people of different faiths and different ethnicities to get to know each other and to understand the other group,” said Edith Osman, chair of the unBIASed Initiative. “Everyone’s got their issues, but the only way that we can change what’s going on with the divisiveness in the community is to build bridges.”
“Christian next to Muslim, Jew next to Hindu, next to Buddhist, next to Atheist, next to anyone. We need not think alike to love alike,” Capo said.
Join us for the next unBIASed event, on Dec. 4, “Letters from Anne and Martin.”
