Addison-Penzak Jewish Community Center


You probably know that Hindus traditionally don’t eat beef and Muslims don’t eat pork, but this panel of Hindu, Muslim, Jain and Buddhist practitioners will discuss much more about food and their faith. Food binds a community, and fortifies a community. It also paradoxically sets people of different faiths apart. Come learn and ask those questions you’ve always had about food and other faiths.

ING Civic and Community Engagement Coordinator Raania Mohsen will join an interfaith panel co-hosted by Silicon Valley Interreligious Council and the Jewish Community Center of Los Gatos that will feature a dynamic conversation exploring food across faiths. This will be part of many other sessions occurring at the JCC’s Annual Jewbilee: A Day of Jewish Learning. This year’s theme is “Food for Thought,” focusing on the significance of food in Jewish and other faith traditions. Hundreds of participants, and dozens of teachers, artists, educators, speakers, and performers are expected to attend and participate in the event 1 – 6:30 pm, Sunday, January 13, 2019.

The Interfaith Panel featuring ING and others is scheduled to begin at 3:50 pm. The presenters are Mihir Meghani (Hinduism), Raania Mohsen (Islam), Girish Shah (Jainism) and Abbot Jianhu Shifu (Buddhism), moderated by Diane Fisher (Judaism).
