Youth Led Common Read

By Ted Resnikoff

The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries is making available grants for youth to form and lead Common Read groups and will publish guidelines and applications for this over the next few weeks. Following up on last year's Common Read in congregation and groups focusing on immigration of "The Death of Josseline: Immigration Stories from the Arizona Borderlands," this year's selection, "Acts of Faith" by Eboo Patel, founder of the Interfaith Youth Core, focuses on the role of youth in bridging interfaith connection through service work. Find out if your congregation plans to participate and, if not, suggest they do.
