Spreading hope

Among those enjoying Beth El’s Interfaith Luncheon in Fairfield were (l to r) Dr. Ellen Umansky, Reverend George Collins of Fairfield University (who delivered the invocation) and Reverends Don and Arlene Studer.

Congregation Beth El of Fairfield raised more than $2000 for Operation Hope at its 38th Annual Sukkot Interfaith Luncheon, held on Oct. 4. Sisters Lynne and Valerie Constantine who co-wrote the book “Circle Dance,” a fictional story about a multigenerational family that overcomes betrayal and tragedy as a result of their strong family ties, tradition and faith, were guest speakers at the festive luncheon attended by local clergy of several difference faiths. Students from Fairfield Warde High School’s Barlow Restaurant program staffed the kitchen — making it possible for luncheon organizers to enjoy the feast.
