Love the Stranger: Music and Learning 

What does it mean to love the stranger? Join us for a musical exploration of this important Jewish tenet that extends far beyond Judaism and connects us all.

We are happy to announce we have a new scheduled date- Join us Sunday January 15 at 4pm!

"You Were Strangers” – a music performance and discussion with Julia Ostrov and Kristen Plylar-Moore
Sunday, Jan. 15, 4pm in person at Beth Jacob Synagogue
Join us for an afternoon of original music, text study, and discussion led by singer Julia Ostrov and songwriter Kristen Plylar-Moore, with special guests and beloved local musicians Mary Bonhag, singer, and D. Davis, guitarist. 
We will learn more about the important Jewish tenet, ‘love the stranger,’ that calls on us to see our own stories reflected in the experiences of others.  For a listen in advance of the program, you can watch this music video of Kristen’s original song “You Were Strangers,” which was released in solidarity with HIAS in honor of National Refugee Shabbat.  
This series is made possible by a generous grant from the Covenant Foundation and Jewish Communities of Vermont.  We also want to thank our co-sponsors- CVRAN, JCVT, Unitarian Church of Montpelier, Old Meeting House and Jewish Community of Greater Stowe.
