    Interfaith Study Group
    by Cecilia Fox and Norma Pratt, ISG Chairs

    Our group is composed of members of Pasadena Jewish Temple & Center, All Saints Episcopal Church, Pasadena, and the Islamic Center of Southern California, in Los Angeles. ISG meetings have been held in monthly rotation at our institutions since 2007.

    Next Meeting: Sunday, September 11 at 5:00 to 7:30 PM at the Pasadena Jewish Temple and Center. Our September 11 and October 9 meetings are linked –each is on the topic of Immigration. At the September event, members of each congregation will describe their families’ arrival and immigrant experience in the United States. At our second meeting, two outstanding professionals will speak to us of their dedicated and important work on immigration issues. Valerie Curtis-Diop, J.D., is an immigration attorney familiar with Muslim immigration issues, with expertise in immigration and nationality law, and an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Angelica Salas is the Executive Director, Coalition of Humane Immigration Rights LA. Both are well known experts, locally, regionally, and nationally. They will speak of their professional work in support of immigrants and others seeking assistance, and other aspects of the needs of immigrant families. Our one-hour meetings are followed by a vegetarian potluck meal, where we discuss the presentations, and prepare questions. A question and answer session with the panelists follows. We meet to learn from each other respectfully in the spirit of friendship, and all who are interested are welcome to join us.
