This year sees a convergence of holy days and seasons among the Abrahamic faiths during the month of April: Passover for Jews, Lent and Easter for Christians, and Ramadan for Muslims.
During this holy season, we come together in solidarity, compassion and kindness and join the Give 30 Campaign to support local food banks.
There are many people in our world who find it difficult to make ends meet; the pandemic has only amplified their struggles and their needs. During this holy season as we take stock of our blessings, let us turn our minds and hearts to those who may not have enough.
From April 15 - April 30, we request our members and congregants to make a contribution at www.give30.org/donate and invite your family, friends, colleagues, and neighbours to follow your example.
Let's be generous, kind, and compassionate to the friend and the stranger alike and respond to selfishness with generosity, division with social solidarity, and meanness with compassion and kindness.
