Thanksgiving dinner, held every year close to Thanksgiving holiday, is one of the major events of Lehigh Dialogue Center where people from different religions come together to share a meal. This is especially important for promoting dialogue between individuals. The ultimate goal is to increase the understanding of other religions.
This year’s Thanksgiving dinner took place on November 17, 2017 at Lehigh Dialogue Center in Bethlehem. Attendees witnessed the speeches given by a representative of each religion – Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The highlight of the night was the two songs performed by Rabbi Davis from Temple Covenant of Peace and her children.
