This year marks the 150th anniversary of The Temple and the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. In celebration of these occasions, please join us for a series of interfaith dialogues through which members of both congregations can better understand their own faith and more deeply appreciate the values and beliefs of their Midtown neighbors.

Building on the Reclaiming the Center program, this series will explore how both of these historic congregations identify as being part of a “reform(ed)” movement within their respective religious traditions—FPC as a Reformed church and The Temple as a congregation in the Reform Movement of Judaism. Each session will include a shared meal, keynote addresses from clergy, and guided discussions among participants about what it means to be rooted in history but reform(ed) in perspective with regard to various aspects of religious identity and practice.
