Interfaith Film Night

Me, The “Other”

 

DATE/TIME

Wednesday Feb 5, 2020 / 6:30 pm-9:00 pm

LOCATION

Black Box Theatre
In the Queen Elizabeth Park community and cultural centre:
2302 Bridge Rd, Oakville

Me, The “Other” reveals the inner and outer lives of twelve people living on the frontlines of prejudice by asking the questions we don’t discuss in classrooms, workplaces, and social places.

The film is the centerpiece of a platform for creating conversations about what connects us and what keeps us apart.

With this film, we set out to tell stories of a diverse cast of characters who are on some level experiencing prejudice. While they are from various backgrounds, in that deep place inside, they are all essentially one… and we are one with them. My personal hope for this film is to expose that sacred place inside where beyond the clouded isms of race, religion, class, gender, age, sexual orientation, physical appearance—lies a place of light, warmth, hope, and pure love called the human soul.

The Golden Rule

First Interfaith Peace Camp in Halton a big success

During the inaugural session of the Halton Interfaith Peace camp, which took place in Oakville from July 9-13, 2018, campers came to Shaarei-Beth El synagogue to learn about Judaism.

The Interfaith council of Halton has in its mission the goal of bringing people of different faiths together for education and fellowship, but it was even more important after the shooting at a mosque in Quebec in January of 2017.
