Join your West Philly (and beyond!) neighbors for an evening of solidarity, connection, conversation, song and food, on the evening of the Inauguration at the Calvary Center for Culture and Community.
As our government inaugurates a new president, and we look to a new year with new hopes and challenges, rededicate yourself to building fellowship across our wonderful community.
Whether you’ve been a member of a congregation or organization that has met here for years, or you’ve never set foot in our doors, join us to build the resilient relationships that will help us all thrive and survive for the next four years and beyond.
We will build the world we want for our neighborhood and city! Absolutely everyone is welcome, including young people accompanied by parents or caregivers. Calvary is an accessible space.
5:30 – Gathering and Interfaith Service
6:30 – Dinner and discussion groups – we are working to provide dinner to all!
7:30 – Singing and more conversation
Free-will Donations at the door will be collected to cover expenses and to benefit the Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR)’s Philadelphia Chapter.
Suggested donation range is $5-25, no one will be turned away due to financial restrictions. Pledge cards will be available for those observing shabbat.
We are also supporting the New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia in their The People’s Inauguration in Philly/La Inauguracion del Pueblo prior to our gathering. We encourage those who are able to attend their gathering at 4pm, and to then make your way to Calvary afterwards!
