The Poway Interfaith Team is sponsoring its 5th Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service beginning at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20 at host Temple Adat Shalom, 15905 Pomerado Road, Poway.
During the service, leaders and choirs from many faith traditions will be sharing how people of the interfaith and intercultural community are healed through praying, singing, working and breaking bread together.
“This service is always joyous, uplifting and inspirational with many of our local faith communities participating,” said Rev. Dr. Abigail Albert, executive director of the Poway Interfaith Team.
Featured this year will be music by the Children’s Choir from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, young violin virtuoso Jonathan Sussman, soloist Julie Iraninejad of the Bahai Faith, and Balbir Kaur Jassal from the San Diego Sikh Foundation. In addition, the Temple Adat Shalom adult choir will be joined by members of Ner Tamid Synagogue, temple soloist Beth Faber Jacobs and the Menschtones barbershop ensemble.
All free-will donations will go to Interfaith Community Services to support their work in North County. Those who attend should bring a nonperishable food item to donate. After the service there will be light refreshments and a hospitality time after the service.
