Please accept our great appreciation for the wonderful hospitality you provided to the confirmation class of Federated Church this past Saturday at Temple Israel. We are so thankful for the tour that Mr. Littky gave to our group prior to the service. We are full of gratitude for Rabbi Azriel so actively including us in the morning service.

This past Saturday, Federated’s confirmands and accompanying mentors and parents experienced both an education about Judaism and we were also the recipients of an outpouring of hospitality. All of this contributes to the formation of our whole selves.

Thank you for the work that you are doing as a congregation – for going above and beyond to welcome interfaith groups into your facility and into your community. On behalf of the confirmation students, their mentors and parents, and myself, thank you again very, very much.
