Tifereth Israel Synagogue, located at 924 Polk Blvd., would like to remind everyone that their S.T.E.P., or Sunday Torah Educational Program, meets every Sunday at 10 a.m. for a lively discussion and study of the Torah. This is an excellent way to study Jewish values, as well as analyze perspectives of Christians and Muslims. The S.T.E.P. program is an outgrowth of the Perek Yomi group that has been meeting at Tifereth for more than two years. No prior religious knowledge is necessary, and everyone is welcome to share. For more information regarding meeting times and locations contact leader, Michael Kuperman, at, or visit the synagogue website at

St. Augustin Catholic Church is challenging members to “Evangelize.”

“We know it works, but, let’s face it, it can be awkward,” organizers wrote in a press release. “So here’s an easy way to do it. Just invite one person who may not otherwise attend the Christ Our Life Regional Catholic Conference. It just might be the best thing we ever did for someone.”

The conference is scheduled at Wells Fargo Arena Sept. 22 and 23. For more information, visit
