We meet monthly on Sundays from 3-5 pm., September through May, at Jowonio School, a neutral location where women of all faith traditions can be comfortable.
The school is on Syracuse’s east side at 3049 E. Genesee St., across from Nottingham High School. Park behind the building and come in the back door at the center of the building.
We’ve held two interfaith blood drives and try to do one annually. Blood has been spilled for religious hatred and enmity — this is a good way to spill blood! We hope to do this annually.
Women meet monthly in homes to discuss a book — the sharing and insights are intriguing, inspiring and thought-provoking. Read more about our Book Club here or get a list of books read in the past several years here.
We’ve held four international dinners — yummy feasts with great conversation, new friends and inspirational speakers. Another is planned for 2010. We’ve raised money for programs here in CNY and around the world. To see pictures of the latest two, click the years below:
Tent of Abraham
This ambitious project in 2007 took people on a walking tour of many houses of worship in the University area, ending at Hendricks Chapel.
We sponsor a booth at community events to tell people about our amazing group. In the summer we’re a regular at Interfaith Works Duck Race to help stamp out racism, part of the Community-Wide Dialogue. We’ve been at the fall Westcott Fair on Syracuse’s east side and even marched in the parade there! Each December you’ll find us at the Syracuse Peace Council Arts and Crafts Festival. These are great chances to spread the word and encourage other women to join us.
