Abrahamic Aliiance Feeding the Homeless

 On November 8, 2015, more than 20 Jews, Christians and Muslims from Congregation Sinai Of San JoseLincoln Glen Church, and Pacifica Institute-Silicon Valley Branch united to serve 100 meals to the homeless residents of InnVision Shelter Network's Innvision Montgomery Street Inn. Volunteer orientation was held at Congregation Sinai and led by Rabbi Joshua Berkenwald, Pastor Larry Albright and Heather Rothenberg. Volunteers united in Jewish-Christian-Muslim buddy groups first to get acquainted, then to prepare and serve a tasty kosher and halal lasagna meal. Muslim volunteers recited afternoon prayers at the synagogue. Rabbi Berkenwald recited a blessing in Aramaic to thank God for the food. Pastor Albright offered a closing prayer of blessing on shelter residents, thanksgiving for serving together, and for new friendships begun.
