Boston Youth Prepare for Summer

What do balloons, Torah scrolls, and Jewish, Christian and Muslim youth of Kids4Peace Boston have in common? All made an appearance at the second meeting of our Summer 2014 kids and parents on Sunday, May 5, 2014! These important programs offer an opportunity to introduce kids and parents before they meet their Peace Pals in our two-week summer program.

A special highlight of this program was a tour of the sanctuary at Temple Beth Zion synagogue in Brookline, Massachusetts. In a small group of students from their faith tradition, they wrote their questions about Judaism and the sanctuary space of Temple Beth Zion. Rabbi Judy Kummer introduced the participants to their sanctuary’s Torah scroll, and offered an opportunity for the participants to ask questions. Those who had never seen a Torah scroll were able to learn how the scrolls were physically created, and think about the similarities between their religious traditions’ scriptures and Rabbi Kumer’s Torah reading.

We look forward to our next event at the Islamic Center of Boston in Wayland, MA, where we will continue to build our relationships and learn a bit about the Islamic tradition!
