Eternal Light Award Dinner and More... To: Our e-Subscribers
March 1, 2007

Dear Friends,

We have just completed our biggest Eternal Light Award Dinner ever, this having been our 8th annual event held in Sarasota on February 18th. With 180 attendees and an emotional evening honoring Rabbi A. James Rudin for his life's work in interfaith relations, we have a new vigor in furthering our mission to engage the public through education and dialogue.

There is so much to tell you...and limited space to do so. In this e-Letter issue, I hope to give you some sense of the efforts which are in progess.

    Seventeen Jewish and Catholic clergy and lay leaders having interest in facilitating their own independently organized programs, "Walking God's Paths: Christians and Jews in Candid Conversation" shared insights along with a delicious lunch. Guest presenters included Rabbi Shoshanah Conover, Assistant Rabbi of Tampa's Congregation Schaarai Zedek, Deacon Pat Macaulay, Director of Interreligious Affairs for the Diocese of Venice and Dr. Joel Kreiss, Board Member of the Jewish Center of Venice.

    Saint Leo Logo

    The Center and Saint Leo University are teaming up under the leadership of Father Michael Cooper, S.J. to conduct a Model Seder on the main campus on March 29th at 5:00 pm. We expect to attract students and introduce them to the Seder such that they can gain an understanding as to its meaning and the Jewish customs which are part of the meal. It is open both to students and the public, but space will be limited. You may register by clicking onto the University logo at left. Through our website "contact us" we will forward your registration to Father Michael.
