The Regional Bahá'í Council is delighted to announce this gathering to the believers in the region.
Gathering for Baha'is of Jewish Descent
New York City Baha'i Center 53 East 11th Street Between University Place and Broadway in Manhattan
Saturday, November 27th , from 4:30pm to 7:30pm second floor, front room with Baha'u'llah's announcement that the Promised One of Judaism has come, that the Burning Bush which spoke to Moses on Mt. Sinai has now appeared, thousands of Jews have accepted His Faith and became Jewish - Baha'is. With such a decision come untold blessings, challenges and responsibilities.
If you or your ancestors are of Jewish heritage, you are invited to an inaugural meeting for Baha'is of Jewish descent. The purpose of this meeting and the activities that will hopefully spring from are to facilitate the integration of Jewish Believers into the Baha'i community and to strengthen their grasp of the Covenant of Baha'u'llah.
The Department of the Secretariat, responding recently on behalf of the Universal House of Justice, has said that this is indeed a worthy intention. At this meeting we will come together to broaden our understanding of the Baha'i Writings as they relate to Judaism and the Jewish people, and to consult as to how to translate those Words into deeds.
