The Interfaith Project of Greater Utica is holding their first ever Thanksgiving event. "Breaking Bread: An Interfaith Thanksgiving Experience" will feature a discussion on the symbol of bread in different religions. It will also include religious music of Thanksgiving and prayers led by different area leaders.
The Interfaith Project is a relatively new organization. Leaders say the goal is to unite and learn about all of the different faiths in the Central New York area.
"The whole idea is to really foster communication among all of us clergy members so that maybe we can foster more dialogue in Utica in general and build upon the great diversity that we already have," says Rabi Cassi Kail of Temple Emanuel in Utica.
"We have a lot of great energy among ourselves as faith leaders that have been betting together in the interfaith project of greater Utica for the last year and we just want to share that energy and we think it's going to continue to grow," said Reverend Robert Umidi of the Westminster Maria Olivet Presbyterian Church.
The event is happening Tuesday night at 7 PM at the RCIL in Utica. The event is free and open to the public but the group is collecting monetary donations for the Food Bank of Central New York.
