Faith & Spiritual Leaders

Antioch Baptist Church of Brooklyn and the Congregation Beth Elohim joined forces with support from the American Jewish Foundation to combat racism and antisemitism. Under the leadership of Rabbi Rachel Timoner and Rev. Dr. Robert M. Waterman, both congregations have committed to developing a community of learning around each other's culture, houses of worship, education, and family by intentionally worshipping together, having shared meals with menus from both cultures, having conversations about our family histories and creating a safe space for these activities. We embarked on this mission almost three years ago and just returned from an overnight joint trip from Brooklyn, New York to Washington DC to visit the Smithsonian African American Museum and the Holocaust Museum, Lincoln and MLK Memorials on MLK Day. Of the 54 attenders 16 of them were young people between the ages of 10 and 25 years old. Thursday's event will be a debrief of our experience while having a meal together at Congregation Beth Elohim, 274 Garfield Place, Brooklyn, New York. All are invited to attend in person or online.
