Rev. Coleman to speak at Temple Sholom

On Yom Kippur afternoon, Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 4 p.m., at Temple Sholom in Greenwich, Pastor Dee Dee Coleman, winner of the prestigious Dalhberg Peace Award, will address the congregation on the topic of Shared History, Shared Future.

The lecture is open to the public but tickets are required. Those interested in attending should contact Alice Schoen at 203-542-7165 or [email protected]

Rev. Coleman is billed as “an ardent supporter of the State of Israel” and has spoken at the national AIPAC Policy Conference. AIPAC, the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, is co-sponsoring this event along with Temple Sholom.

Rev. Coleman is currently the pastor of the Russell Street Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit, Mich., the first woman to hold that title in the church’s history.

She received the 2007 Edwin T. Dahlberg Peace Award for outstanding work in prison ministry and prisoner reentry. The Dahlberg is the highest award granted by American Baptist Churches-USA and was first given to Dr. Martin Luther King.

When asked what her motto is, Rev. Coleman said, “If I can help somebody along the way, then my living won’t be in vain.”
