SPECIAL FOR THE AJT //

The Epstein School in Sandy Springs welcomed Faith Lutheran School of Marietta to an Interfaith Seder recently.

Created to engage students in sharing their faiths, the seder helped to foster understanding, religious tolerance and respect.

Through dialogue and sharing of a seder meal, students learned about each other’s faiths.

What permeated in the room was a genuine friendliness and appreciation of one another, evident as the walls of “I don’t know you yet” came down and were replaced with smiles and the natural human spirit of camaraderie that come from getting to know one another.

The Interfaith Seder was led by Epstein Judaics Educator Ron Einhorn, and words of welcome were offered by Epstein’s Head of School Stan Beiner.

Also in attendance was Epstein’s Middle School Principal, Myrna Rubel, and Faith Lutheran School’s Principal, Jack Hibbs.
