The University of Notre Dame Alumni Association espouses a philosophy embodied by “the six C’s” — camaraderie, Catholic spirituality, current students, community service, continuing education and communication.

In that spirit, the university’s Greensburg/Uniontown chapter has invited the public to join its members for a Jan. 18 visit to Congregation Emanu-El in Greensburg, followed by a conversation with Rabbi Stacy Petersohn.

“This is an opportune time for us to connect with our Jewish brothers and sisters and show our support, and the desire to understand each other and work together for a better community for all,” said event chair Msgr. Roger Statnick.

Following the 7 p.m. Sabbath service, guests will have an opportunity to discuss Judaism, the congregation’s worship and the current state of Jewish-Christian relations.

Alumni and members of the public are welcome to attend. Reservations are not required but can be made by emailing [email protected] before Jan. 17.

The synagogue is at 222 North Main Street in Greensburg. For more, see .

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
