Interfaith Thanksgiving Program and Services – Sunday, Nov. 24

The community is welcome to attend the 3rd Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service to be held on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 6 p.m. at University Methodist Church, 5084 De Zavala Rd. The theme will be about tolerance in our world today.

The service will bring together dozens of local synagogues, churches, and mosques to celebrate shared traditions and the importance of coming together to give thanks for the good we have in our lives. In addition to prayers from local community leaders and clergy, there will also be performances from the Congregation Agudas Achim’s Youth Choir, San Antonio Youth Chorale, and the University Methodist Choir.

Additionally, the keynote speakers this year will be four San Antonio Jewish women who proposed and promoted passage of a new state mandate requiring a week of Holocaust education in all Texas public schools.

“Giving back to our community and praying together are integral parts of Judaism, but also shared with our Christian and Muslim neighbors and friends,” said CAA Senior Rabbi, Rabbi Jeffrey Abraham.  “It will be a beautiful evening to bring our community together for a good cause and to give thanks.”
