Rabbi Jack Moline, Executive Director of the national Interfaith Alliance in Washington, DC, will be speaking at the Tulsa Interfaith Alliance’s Russell Bennett Award Celebration on Thursday, April 30, 2015. Rabbi Moline will address national trends that may impact the people of Oklahoma, including the recent rise in legislation that would allow business owners to refuse to serve customers based upon religious beliefs.
The Russell Bennett Award Celebration is an annual fundraising event of the Tulsa Interfaith Alliance in which they honor a member of the community whose work mirrors that of the Tulsa Interfaith Alliance and its founder, the late Rev Dr Russell Bennett. This year’s Russell Bennett Faith and Courage Award will be presented to Rev Dr Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa.
The Celebration will begin at 6:00pm at the Raindrop House Turkish Cultural Center, 4444 W. Houston St (81st St) in Broken Arrow. In addition to Rabbi Moline’s remarks, the evening will include a silent auction, a buffet dinner provided by the Raindrop House, a short business meeting, presentation of the award, and remarks from Rev Lavanhar. Tickets for the evening are $30/person and are available for purchase on-line at the Tulsa Interfaith Alliance’s web site.
