reGeneration’s Interfaith Concert for Possibility at Temple Emanuel in Beverly Hills on Sunday night was more than a concert; it was an event, a happening, a milestone, the embodiment of the essence of reGeneration’s vision.
Credit goes to every soul who made the decision to come into this temple with an open heart; it is because of you that the evening soared with the energy of possibility!
The journey began as people mingled, introduced themselves, talking quietly, hopefully, about what larger meaning there was in this long planned for event.
And then the room came alive with the music of the Middle East…making sweet sounds, lifting hands and spirits, people coming together for the first time, at one with the music, at one with each other. Bursts of rhythmic clapping emanated from an audience transported by the emotion in voices and instruments experienced perhaps for the first time; some got up to dance.
There were the prayers of faith leaders, Jewish, Muslim and Christian, and the sweet voices of children as they too, came forward to offer blessings based in scripture.
We are so grateful to all those who came out on a Sunday evening to experience this watershed moment; with all of us, together in that space, reGeneration’s vision gained momentum. Because of the generosity of spirit of hard-working volunteers and audience alike, we experienced the energy which promises to carry us to the next level.
The seeds of hope are planted and will be nurtured by a sense of the highest good, clear intention, and a passion shared by so many of you to bring comfort to the children of Palestine and Israel. No longer just a dream, you showed up. Thank you friends!
So many asked, “What can I do to help?” You can join a team with as much time and talent as you have to share. Are you an IT person with the skill set to oversee Facebook or Twitter?
Can you make a short film about our mission and accomplishments?
Do you have marketing experience that can help reGeneration thrive and grow. Are you a PR maven, or a rabbi, imam, priest or minister with a passion for interfaith understanding?
The musicians we heard and saw showed us by example, the harmony we seek for everyone. We have experienced the beauty of possibility when disparate cultures came together in unison, moved by a common vision.
