This Sunday, April 3 2016, Interfaith will be hosting two very exciting events. Margot Lobree, a native of Frankfurt, Germany and a survivor of the Holocaust, will share her personal journey today. Mrs. Lobree was one of 10,000 children rescued by England following Kristalnacht Nov. 9-10, 1938, as a vicious pogrom was carried out against Jews living in Germany and Austria. More than 1,000 synagogues were burned during that scourge. The gathering meets at 8 a.m. at the Golden Corral Restaurant, 180 Hanes Mall Circle, in Winston-Salem. No reservations are required. mail to firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Journeys.
Later that afternoon Interfaith will host our ninth annual Interfaith Tour will visit three Winston-Salem worship centers this afternoon, and everyone is welcome. At each location, leaders of the centers will share the history of their tradition and tell special stories about their faiths. We begin at 2 p.m. at The Community Mosque, 1419 Waughtown St. with Imam Khalid Griggs. Our second stop at 3 p.m. is at St. Phillips Moravian Church in Old Salem, the oldest African-American church still standing in North Carolina. Rev. Russ May will be our host at St. Phillips. The tour concludes at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church at 1730 Link Road beginning at 4 p.m. led by Father Carl Zdancewicz.
