The Brooklyn Nomads Concert for refugees @ Indiana Landmarks

The Brooklyn Nomads Concert for refugees @ Indiana Landmarks

BROOKLYN NOMADS (NYC) will perform a two-hour musical tribute to the six countries named in the March 16 travel ban – Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. This concert is an expression of support and gratitude towards the rich melting pot of the entire United States, which enabled this group to come to life.

Interpreting Middle Eastern folk music through cultural and musical backgrounds as diverse as Brooklyn itself, the Nomads put a contemporary spin on a traditional Arabic repertoire from Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, as well music from Iran, Turkey, Uzbekistan and beyond. Brass and wind, string and vocals, tap and percussion – the Nomads create a transcendent mix of voices, rich instrumentation and innovative composition.

“The rich ecosystem of NYC permitted this group to come to life – musicians from different continents and distinct backgrounds creating a hybrid of transcendent sounds,” says Hadi Eldebek, who founded the Brooklyn Nomads in 2014 to explore multicultural music from the diverse perspective of New York City. “We perform in solidarity with those affected by the Executive Order and seek to preserve the dignity, respect, and compassion of the United States.” Eldebek will be among the group’s members traveling to Indianapolis for this one night only performance. “We hope to keep adding to the music around us and share the journey with you in Indianapolis,” he said.

This unique opportunity is presented by St. Paul’s Episcopal Church’s newly-developed Center for Faith, Justice and the Arts, and IndyFringe. “Today we struggle as a society with the basic question of hospitality: who belongs and who is acceptable?” says the Rev. John Denson, St. Paul’s Rector. “With this inaugural event of the Center for Faith, Justice and the Arts we hope, through the music of the Brooklyn Nomads, to create an experience that opens our eyes to see as God sees; which is to see that all people belong and all are acceptable.”

The symbols and architecture of houses of worship are meant to draw the faithful closer to the Divine. The Center for Interfaith Cooperation invites you to tour seven different churches, mosques, synagogues, and temples.

Rev. Anastassia Zinke explains how Unitarians draw from “The Children of Abraham”

The Center for Interfaith Cooperation presents a series of talks about “The Children of Abraham” featuring CIC board members. Three of the world’s great religious traditions trace their roots to the patriarch Abraham. While Judaism, Christianity, and Islam differ greatly in their doctrines and practices, they also share many beliefs and tenets. Learn more about the history, the differences, and the commonalities of the three “Abrahamic” faiths. Each week a different religious leader or expert will explore different aspects of these three monotheistic traditions.

A Sacred Spaces Tour of the state’s only Vietnamese Buddhist temple

The An Lac Buddhist Temple is part of the Mahayana branch of Buddhism, and is the only Buddhist temple in Indianapolis founded by a recent immigrant community to preserve and perpetuate traditions of the homeland. The An Lac Temple was founded in 1986 by a small group of Vietnamese-Americans who bought two neighboring houses and used them both as a temple for community. In 2002, a community of nuns moved into the second house and established it as a nunnery. They are in the process of building a larger, more formal Buddha Hall in traditional Vietnamese style, on the same grounds.

For many people, the most important place in their lives is where they worship with friends, family, and fellow believers.

A Sacred Spaces Tour of the Hindu Temple of Central Indiana

For nearly 10 years, much of Indianapolis’ growing Hindu population has worshipped in a temporary space — a functional yet spartan building, so unlike the intricately ornate temples in India. But in June 2015, the Hindu Temple of Central Indiana will unveil a long-awaited, $10 million expansion. It will add a worship hall that includes 17 shrines, with a skylight surrounded by four new carved towers that transform the sand-colored building into a more recognizable temple silhouette.

For many people, the most important place in their lives is where they worship with friends, family, and fellow believers. The symbols and architecture of houses of worship are meant to draw the faithful closer to the Divine. The Center for Interfaith Cooperation invites you to tour seven different churches, mosques, synagogues, and temples.

A Sacred Spaces Tour of Mt. Zion Baptist Church

In 1869, a group of seven or eight Christians from Lick Creek Baptist Church (near Beech Grove) and White Lick Colored Baptist Church (near Bridgeport) met to form a new congregation. These persons were probably ex-slaves or sharecroppers who resided on Fletcher’s Farm (known as Fletcher’s Bottom) south of Indianapolis. The church’s first building was an old tool shed donated by Mr. Stoughton Fletcher the owner of the farm. The tool shed was located on the lower ground of the farm, but a group of men physically carried it up to higher ground. The new congregation was named Mt. Zion Baptist Church.

For many people, the most important place in their lives is where they worship with friends, family, and fellow believers. The symbols and architecture of houses of worship are meant to draw the faithful closer to the Divine. The Center for Interfaith Cooperation invites you to tour seven different churches, mosques, synagogues, and temples.
