Davenport, IA/ August 6th, 2019 – The 14th Annual Women’s Interfaith Dialogue will be held at the Temple
Emanuel located at 1115 Mississippi Avenue in Davenport, IA on Monday, September 9th and again on
Monday, September 16th from 6:30pm – 8:30pm. This year’s topic will be “From Faith to Action: How our
traditions influence our choices”. The Women’s Interfaith Dialogue is open to people of all faiths throughout
the Quad Cities to help us build a better sense of community with one another while working to make a
difference in our community.
The first night will have speakers and include discussions about how our different traditions influence our
choices and our actions. “I look so forward to this annual event, because it’s an incredibly enlightening and
positive way to help us better understand each other and celebrate our differences”, says Linda Golden
Committee Organizer for the Women’s Interfaith Dialogue.
On the second night, Monday, September 16th, the group will get back together at 6:30pm at Temple
Emanuel and will have a different program including the chance to actively work together to fill and then
donate backpacks with personal items to be distributed to the Local Police. The police in our area
encounter people daily who are homeless. Many times the people they come across are too scared to get
the help they need, so our area Police have been collecting backpacks full of useful items such as small
blankets, toothbrushes, toothpaste, socks, bottled water and other essential items to give to people in need
as they come across those in need in our community. These types of goods are often neglected by other
non-profits, but do go a long way toward giving individuals support and compassion at this crossroads in their
Sr. Marianne Burkhard, also a Committee Organizer for the Women’s Interfaith Dialogue says she’s a part of
this event because, “Sharing faith, values and our common concern for our neighbors creates a lot of
positive energy that is invigorating and sorely needed in our world.”
