This is a column I just published in the newspaper regarding the recent ecumenical event between ST. Frances by the Sea Catholic Church and Congregation Beth Yam with Professor Michael Cook as our Scholar in Residence. We shall not forget the events and the camaraderie that pervaded the work of both committees from our respective congregations. This column advocates why ecumenical
activities are critical these days given the state of our politics and how if feels were are becoming more tribal in so many dimensions of our culture. Take a read and let me know what you think.
