GLENCOE – North Shore Congregation Israel is honored to host Cardinal Blase J. Cupich, Archbishop of Chicago, on Monday, January 29 at 7 p.m. The Cardinal’s presentation is titled: “What Does Outreach Mean in Light of Interreligious Dialogue?” This will be the first time that Cardinal Cupich has spoken at a synagogue on the North Shore of Chicago since his elevation to Cardinal in 2016.

“North Shore Congregation Israel has enjoyed a long-standing and wonderful relationship with the Archdiocese of Chicago, and we are deeply grateful to Cardinal Cupich for taking time out of his incredibly busy schedule to share his reflections on building interreligious connections in the 21st Century,” said Rabbi Wendi Geffen, senior rabbi of North Shore Congregation Israel. As a synagogue, North Shore Congregation Israel is deeply committed to advancing interfaith relationships across the Chicagoland area, and Cardinal Cupich’s visit offers the entire North Shore suburban community the powerful opportunity to hear directly from the cardinal in a Jewish setting.
