Three years ago, members of Congregation Sons of Israel in Upper Nyack hosted a Shabbat dinner and invited members of other houses of worship to join them as a show of unity. The response was heartening and the dinner has continued annually. This year’s event, held last week, was in the wake of the recent shootings at the Chabad synagogue in Poway, Calif., and the murders in Christchurch, New Zealand, and in Sri Lanka. It was sponsored by CSI Nyack, the Reform Temple of Rockland, individual sponsors, and local businesses, including the Challah Fairy in New City. Participants were asked to bring gift cards to benefit refugees. For more information, go to csinyack.org, or call Rabbi Ariel Russo at (845) 358-3767.
