Can these bones live? -Civic Commons

That was the question The Very Reverend Tracey Lind asked about 2,000 people Monday night. It wasn't really an original question but it was apropos. She was quoting the Old Testament prophet Ezekiel and the story he told that some know as the Valley of the Dry Bones. Considering what was happening at the Masonic Temple and who was among the 2,000 people, it was a perfect question, one that many Greater Clevelanders have actually been asking themselves for some time.

Multi-faith coalition share vision of Greater Cleveland: jobs, education, safety, respect and no hunger -Cleveland Plain Dealer

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A newly organized multi-faith coalition of 40 different religious congregations and community groups unveiled a coming-out Monday -- in the words of Rabbi Robert Nosanchuk -- to "rise against the tide of a despairing Cleveland."

The seeds of the new coalition, called Greater Cleveland Congregations, were sown in September at an organizational meeting attended by 350 people at Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple in Beachwood where Nosanchuk is senior rabbi.
By Monday, it appeared the seeds flowered into a mass movement as more than 2,000 people filled a giant theater in the Masonic Auditorium near downtown.

New Interfaith Group Will Work for Social Justice -Cleveland Plain Dealer

By The Rev. Jawanza Karriem Lightfoot Colvin
and Rabbi Robert A. Nosanchuk

At the historic March on Washington of 1963, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shared his social vision with our nation. In his "I Have a Dream" speech, he painted a picture in words of a community shaped by principles of justice, democracy and human dignity.

The social vision articulated by King was rooted in a clear understanding of how social transformation occurs -- through the common cause of collective social action.

As fellow clergy leaders of congregations in the city and suburbs of Cleveland, we share King's vision and philosophy of change. Along with a host of ministers, rabbis, imams and people of faith in the Greater Cleveland area, we and our communities are concerned about the socioeconomic conditions and growing despair in our region, and we are committed to partnering with one another to turning things around.

Organizing for sustainable change -Cleveland Jewish News

Religious leaders, congregants creating community network
By RABBI JOSHUA CARUSO
I spent my early childhood growing up in a racially diverse neighborhood in Brooklyn, N.Y. My memories are vivid. I played stoopball by the brownstone buildings, stickball in the streets, and enjoyed block parties with my friends. My block was my family and included people of many races, religions and income levels.
