InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Concert

NAIN congratulates the Interfaith Council of Metropolitan Washington on its upcoming 35th anniversary of its Interfaith Concert.  In particular, we wish to express good wishes to Rev. Clark Lobenstine, one of the individual founders of NAIN, as he approaches retirement after 35 years as its Executive Director.  Past NAIN Chair Mike Goggin sends the following message to NAIN members.

Dear Fellow Members of NAIN,

If you were at the Connect in Toronto this August, you might have heard me say that the InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington (IFC), a founding member of NAIN, is preparing to honor its Executive Director Rev. Clark Lobenstine, one of the individual founders of NAIN, at its upcoming 35th Anniversary InterFaith Concert, taking place at Washington Hebrew Congregation on Tuesday, November 19. Clark will be retiring some time in the next 6-8 months after marking 35 years as the only Executive Director the organization has ever known.

To commemorate this milestone, a souvenir program book is currently being assembled that will be made available to everyone attending the event. If you would like to share a message of gratitude and well wishes to Clark on this once in a lifetime occasion, I encourage you to consider placing a tribute ad in this book by contacting me on 202-277-4447 or no later than next Friday, November 1.

If you plan to be in Washington, DC on November 19, please join us for the 35th Anniversary InterFaith Concert, which will feature the Kalavaridhi School of Hindu Dance, the Mormon Choir of Washington, Shir HaNefesh of Temple Rodef Shalom, Sikh Kirtani Jatha, the Cameroonian Choir of Silver Spring Presbyterian Church and a combined choir of 200 voices and ten different faith traditions under the direction of Mr. Sam Bonds (George Mason University, Zion Baptist Church and Duke Ellington School of the Arts.) It is again my privilege to coordinate this outstanding Celebration of the Sacred in Song, Dance and Chant. Tickets are priced at $35 (reserved), $20 (general admission) and $10 (students and seniors.)
