IADS Rabbi to Speak at Interfaith Service Sept. 12
Rabbi Dorit Edut will speak at Renaissance Unity’s Interfaith Opening service on Wednesday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m. Rabbi Edut is currently the president at the Detroit Interfaith Outreach Network. She does rabbinic work and teaches at the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue in Detroit. She will join clergy from religious traditions that span the globe in prayer, peace and love. The event is open to the community.
The Interfaith Service combines people of many different beliefs in a collective spirit of love. “It is extremely powerful and moving having different faiths pray together for a common cause,” said Edut.
The Interfaith Service is followed by a 24-hour prayer vigil, which culminates into Unity’s World Day of Prayer. Unity World Day of Prayer started in 1994. This yearly event is held in Unity Churches across the world each September.
The Universe is Calling is the theme for this year’s World Day of Prayer. The Interfaith service will have prayer from leaders of diverse religions and cultural traditions from around the globe includingBaha’i, Buddhist, Catholic, Christian, Islamic, Native American, Sikh. People from all religious backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
Al and Suzanne Resnick of Southfield have attended the Interfaith Service since 1999 and find more similarities among the religions than differences.
“We have so much in common.” said Suzanne Serlin-Resnick. “Being actively involved in the Jewish Faith and Unity, I see the golden rule — do unto others as you would have them do unto you, is shared by most religions.”
Renaissance Unity is located at 11200 E. 11 Mile Road in Warren. For more information, call (586) 353-2300.
