Gathering

Visitors are welcome! Join us on Sundays at Albert Einstein High School, 11135 Newport Mill Road, Kensington, MD 20895, 10 a.m. - Noon, for Gathering (service), our Adult Education Program, Sunday School, and Yoga class.

IFFP Gatherings provide an opportunity for IFFP families to gather in a community and worship while meeting some spiritual needs. Gatherings are led by Rev. Julia Jarvis, our Spiritual Director and Rabbi Rain Zohav, our Jewish Spiritual Advisor. Our IFFP Band is an integral component to out gathering. During our Gatherings we express our joys and sorrows, reflect, pray, sing, participate in Interfaith Response Readings, and read many texts, in addition to the Jewish and Christian bible.

In addition to the traditional holiday Gathering themes (e.g. Yom Kippur or Easter), other recent themes include:

  • The Treasure of Faith
  • The Treasure of Being a Blessing
  • The Treasure of Letting Go
  • The Treasure of Wrestling
  • Cultivating the Capacity for Joy
  • The Prophets' Call to Justice
  • Religion in Our Everyday Lives
  • Rituals
  • Tikkun Olam (Healing the World)
  • Wonderful Words of Life
  • What Does the Lord Require of Us
