Making friends in Greenwich

Rabbi Mitchell Hurvitz, senior rabbi at Temple Sholom and co-founder of the Sholom Center, addresses a crowd of over 400 who came to watch the Interfaith Celebration of Broadway Concert on January 22.

Temple Sholom and Christ Church Greenwich have been collaborating on interfaith programs for some time.  Now, the two Greenwich houses of worship have formalized their relationship with the establishment of the Sholom Center for Interfaith Learning and Fellowship.
The vision of Rabbi Mitchell M. Hurvitz and The Reverend Dr. James Lemler, the mission of the Sholom Center is to provide collaborative programming and bring together houses of worship from all faiths in the greater Greenwich community.  To date, the Sholom Center has had a number of programs including a Celebration of Broadway Concert in January attended by more than 400. Next up: a chamber music concert on March 27 at Temple Sholom.  In addition, every Monday, at 5 p.m., Hurvitz and Lemler appear on the “Darby and Friends” radio show on WGCH 1490AM to discuss issues relevant to all faiths.
