Enjoy a summer day on the Morristown Green at Diversity Day on July 8.  We will start with an interfaith service from 11:00 a.m. to noon. Cantor Shana Onigman of Morristown Jewish Center–Beit Yisrael will be participating.

The festival will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Enjoy sampling food from many cultures. Be entertained by an array of community members, including a whirling dervish from Afghanistan and Jewish music from the talented singers from the Morristown Jewish Center.

The planning process has brought together many people in the community who might normally just walk past each other, but are now enjoying each other’s company as we get to know each other.

As for the Jewish contribution, we will be displaying our beautiful quilted chuppah (see above). The other groups are very excited to see it. Volunteers are still needed to help bake rugelach sometime in June to be frozen and then served at Diversity Day. And volunteers are also needed to help out at our paper quilt-making table from noon to 4. Please contact Susan Neigher at sneigher@hotmail.com if you can help.
