“God in the Box” a Success!

Rabbi Jim Bennett and IP/FBW Coordinator Leslie Heberlie at “God in the Box”

On Saturday, members and friends of Interfaith Partnership/Faith Beyond Walls joined with members at Shaare Emeth Congregation to view and discuss the engaging documentary “God in the Box.” This film follows three road-tripping young men who take a small sound booth around the country and ask people to step inside and relate their understanding of who God is and what God looks like. The film was honest and irreverent in its insight into how we perceive God.

Over 120 people came together for the movie discussion as part of Shaare Emeth’s larger celebration of the Festival of Shavuot. Dairy desserts were served as part of the tradition of the holiday. Afterward, guests took part in Havdalah and brief Shavuot prayer and meditation. Thank you to all who came, and to the staff at Shaare Emeth for their exceedingly gracious hospitality!
