Each month, Interfaith Interconnect sponsors a religion chat. On August 12, the topic will be: “Who in your faith is considered a holy person–a person held in high regard?” All are welcome. This month the event is held at Congregation Beth Emek, 3400 Nevada Court, Pleasanton, 5-6pm. Our speakers will be Rabbi Laurence E. Milder of Beth Emek speaking on the Jewish faith. Ustad Ali Ataie, professor at St. Mary’s College, will speak from the Muslim perspective. At each of these events, there is an opportunity for small group discussions.
