Intertwine Interfaith Initiative
Embracing All Faiths
Intertwine Interfaith is an initiative to build positive relationships while learning more about other faith communities. In a world where divisiveness may seem like the norm, we strive to celebrate both our similarities and differences with members of various faiths and backgrounds.

Intertwine Interfaith Cooking Class
Event Date: Saturday, November 23 | 5:00pm | Parkway UCC
Intertwine is excited to announce our first interfaith cooking class. We will begin the evening with a brief Havdalah ceremony, separating the Jewish Sabbath from the rest of the week.
Members from TASOM, Congregation Shaare Emeth, and Parkway UCC will demonstrate two recipes each that are representative of the religion/culture’s cuisine:
TASOM – lentil soup; baklava
Congregation Shaare Emeth – Challah bread, sweet kugel
Parkway UCC – spinach artichoke casserole; German potato salad
Class participants will each learn how to make two dishes; all recipes will be shared. The group will then offer blessings and enjoy the meal and fellowship together. Turkish coffee and tea will be served.
This class is limited to 10 participants from each of the three groups. Cost is $10 per person to be paid at the door. Advanced registration is REQUIRED at Bit.ly/IntertwineCooking
To celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving, please bring nonperishable donations or grocery gift cards to be donated to Circle of Concern.
