Since 1994, the Temple B’nai Abraham Women’s Interfaith Forum, celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., gathers women from greater Essex County’s houses of worship and faith–based groups, to share a vegetarian meal, prepared by the women of TBA’s Sisterhood, and a discussion about issues that are of interest to women of all backgrounds. Many guests are repeat participants and have attended this event over the years. Acquaintances have turned into friendships through the years as many returning invitees look forward to this yearly event. This year’s event is chaired by Janet Penn, spearheaded by TBA Social Action Committee Chair Lisa Reisboard and member Ruth Ross, along with TBA Sisterhood Co- Presidents Sandra Kantor and Suzanne Weinick.

The topic this year is “Managing Wellness in a Stressful World: Exploring Tools for Mindfulness and Self-Care. “ Karen Frank, TBA Congregational Nurse will lead the panel discussion. There will be a Q & A following the discussion.
