On Sunday July 16th, Debbie hosted a women’s barbecue for both KJC and ISK. This was the second women’s event focusing on food and developing friendships between the Muslim and Jewish communities in Kingston. After the initial potluck, we wanted to develop continued connections and ensure that we created regular events to facilitate conversations and relationships. Having it at Debbie’s created a more intimate environment.
After setting up the food we all brought and putting the dogs away, Eram took charge of the barbecued corn and vegetables and Debbie managed the chicken. The afternoon was filled with food, roasted marshmallows, and great conversation. At the end of the day we decided to have another potluck at the end of Augist and hike at Little Cataraqui Conservation Area. Our main goal at this point is to create stronger connections to help facilitate better communication between both groups.
At the same time, we are putting efforts into developing stronger relationships with several groups within Kingston. If you are interested in becoming involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
