Summer Peace Project Day 1 – Building Community

Our Interfaith Summer Children’s Program took place Aug. 14 – 17. We explored what it means to “love our neighbor”. Using a program developed by the producers of “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood”, children ages 5 (completed kindergarten) to 12  created their own neighborhood and learnt what it means to build community together. This program was sponsored by St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Old Bergen Church, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Christ United Methodist Church, the Islamic Center of Jersey City, Church of the Incarnation, St. Aedan’s Roman Catholic Church, and Temple Beth El. The program took place at Old Bergen Church, Jersey City.
