On the evening of Tuesday, November 26th Temple Emanu-El of Edison had the honor of hosting the annual Metuchen Edison Area Interfaith Clergy Association (MEAICA) Thanksgiving Service. With over 150 people in attendance, we meaningfully offered thanks in the shared language of multiple faiths. Interfaith relationships are fundamental to vibrant communities, and we here at Temple Emanu-El are grateful to all those who joined us and raised their voices in fellowship. In this season of light and miracles, it is a blessing for us to be able to gather as one. May the Metuchen-Edison area continue to grow in community, and may our interfaithwork serve as a beacon of light through this holiday season.
In blessing, Rabbi David Z. Vaisberg Cantor Aviva Marer The entire Temple Emanu-El family
