A Temple Sinai Program: Shared Narratives of Hardships — United Hope for Healing
The collective narratives of the Jewish people and Indigenous people share commonalities in their commitment to peoplehood, spirituality and investment in the land. Both nations have suffered unspeakable hardships in their histories and today face the challenge of identifying a pathway forward. This journey of healing can be fostered in tandem. Rabbi Daniel Mikelberg, a grandchild of Holocaust survivors, and Kim Wheatley, Anishinaabe (Ojibway) band member of Shawanaga First Nation, will reflect on their shared conversations as keepers of their family’s stories. They will speak to importance of documenting past histories internally within their respective communities, and externally with neighboring communities, as a means to build bridges and to heal wounds of the past. Music has been central to this pathway. Kim will join Cantor Charles Osborne in demonstrating the power of song as a story-telling tool and source of hope. Time: 7:00 p.m. This program is free and open to everyone. Register online at www.templesinai.net, call the Temple Office at 416-487-4161 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. 210 Wilson Avenue.
