Building Bridges Across Faiths
Congregation B'nai Torah, of Sudbury, and the Boston Society of the General Church of the New Jerusalem, formerly of Concord, are pleased to announce that the Church of the New Jerusalem began holding services in B'nai Torah's facility at 225 Boston Post Road, Sudbury, in December 2018.
The church, formerly located in Concord, reached out to the synagogue in its search for a new location for its congregants, situated largely in Sudbury and Wayland, to worship. B'nai Torah welcomed the opportunity for both the temple and the church to jointly utilize its sanctuary and classrooms. The public is invited to worship with either community. Service schedules for B'nai Torah are posted on their website at www.bnaitorah.com. Service schedules for the Church of the New Jerusalem are available on their website, newchurchconcord.org.
The two organizations, one Jewish and one Christian, are excited to unite in one spiritual home and see this as an example of how communities can build bridges across faiths—forming relationships between religious communities.
About Congregation B’nai Torah: Founded in 1974 in Sudbury, Mass., Congregation B’nai Torah is a growing community of over 150 families. One of the most innovative Jewish experiences in MetroWest, the congregation emphasizes a fun and connected community, lifelong learning from its unique and convenient one-day-a-week Hebrew school through adult education, and a personal relationship with the rabbi. B’nai Torah is a friendly and inclusive congregation, where people brought up in different branches of Judaism worship together, and where interfaith and non-Jewish family members are included completely and comfortably. Our Reform Jewish congregation supports individuals and families from diverse backgrounds wherever they are on their spiritual journey.
About the Church of the New Jerusalem: The Boston Society is the regional congregation of the General Church of the New Jerusalem, headquartered in Bryn Athyn, PA. The church worships the one God of the Old and New Testaments, who is Jesus Christ. It teaches that the Bible is about Him throughout, and also has universal spiritual meaning for our lives within its literal stories; to live a spiritual life is to love God and the neighbor, especially by living a useful life.
