Pastor shares Jewish journey

Heidi Neumark, a Lutheran pastor with unexpected Jewish roots, will speak during Shabbat evening services, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20.

Neumark is the author of Hidden Inheritance: Family Secrets, Memory and Faith, a memoir that outlines her personal and theological journey since discovering that her grandfather died in the Holocaust. She was not, as she was raised to believe, descended from a long line of German Lutherans, but of distinguished rabbis.

She also will speak at noon and 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19 at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church.


People of all faiths give thanks
