Stand Up to Hate

The Power of the Individual, The Light of Education and The Love of Humanity.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
— Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In a place where there is no humanity, strive to be an upstanding human being.
 .במקום שאין אנשים השתדל להיות איש
— Rabbi Hillel

Join us for a truly unique study opportunity as Anshe Emet Synagogue and Bright Star Church come together in an exploration of the Book of Exodus and its relevance for our age.

Rabbi Michael Siegel and Pastor Chris Harris will lead a robust, interactive and far reaching conversation that will engage participants from both places of worship.  Our goal is to delve into an ancient text in order to deepen our understanding of different perspectives in a spirit of openness and respect, continuing the march toward freedom and equality together.

Participants will be from both congregations.
This class spans three sessions: Mondays, March 1,8 and 15.
