De-mystifying Judaism: An Outreach Program Designed to Bring People of Different Faiths Together – Mar 14, 2020

Now more than ever, communities of faith should come together, to learn more about different religious traditions and share in the understanding that we have more similarities than differences. We can be proud of our own beliefs and traditions while at the same time respecting those who were born into, or have chosen to live by another set of religious practices.

Through birth and marriage, Jasha is part of an interfaith family that contains Christians, Muslims, and Jews. Jasha has prayed in churches, mosques and synagogues around the world and helps people of different religious backgrounds to bridge the gap of misunderstanding that has caused division among people of different faiths throughout the ages and across the world.

Please join us and help in bringing the Southern Maryland communities of faith together to work towards a brighter future for us all!
