Thoughts on Interfaith Week

My name is Sara and I am currently a student at Cardiff University. I am also the Treasurer of the Cardiff JSoc. I'm a huge supporter of and very passionate about interfaith here in Cardiff. I believe that interfaith unites us and brings us together in terms of our similarities rather than our differences.

In Cardiff, there is an accessible and welcoming Chaplaincy who is always open to everyone and anybody. Every Tuesday they serve £1 lunches and every Friday there is a drop-in cafe. These small events allow you to meet and interact with people from all faiths, ask questions in a safe and supportive environment.

Yom Ha’atzmaut 2019- Happy Birthday Israel!

Happy Birthday Israel!  

Sitting here writing this, while scrolling through headline after headline, looking at picture after picture and video after video of what is happening back home, it’s scary (petrifying even) but also empowering to an extent. Jews have always faced some sort of persecution or attack and yet we are still here, and not only are we here but we are celebrating 71 years of Independence.
