Interfaith Action of Central Texas

Monday, November 17;  6:30-8:00pm

Congregation Beth Israel –
3901 Shoal Creek Blvd, Austin

The Sarajevo Haggadah is a sacred text and prayer book for Passover that is thought to be more than 500 years old. The journey of the Sarajevo Haggadah is a compelling story of different faith groups working together throughout the centuries to save and protect this treasured manuscript.

iACT is honored to partner with University of Texas Performing Arts to host a conversation and reception with Merima Kljuco, Bosnian-born accordionist and composer, who composed the “Music of the Book” representing the journey of the Haggadah. This will be a celebration of unity, and a needed positive experience during a time of widespread unrest.

Red Bench – People’s Choiceredbench_logo-300x79

The Red Bench is an on-going dialogue program designed to address the most pressing needs of our time: improving interfaith understanding and civil discourse in our society. Each conversation is centered on moderated small group discussions that are genuinely respectful and safe.  No one has to be an expert – individual participants are invited to share from their personal experiences and listen with their hearts.  The format is structured and allows each individual to be heard.  Each conversation is moderated by table hosts.
