Interweave Celebrates 30 Years of Service to the Community

Interweave, a regional interfaith and interdisciplinary community learning center in Summit, celebrated its 30th anniversary with a gala celebration on Saturday evening, June 5th. The event was held at Christ Church Short Hills, and featured a silent auction, dinner catered by David Ellis Catering of Cedar Knolls, and a program celebrating 30 years of Interweave's educational service to the northern New Jersey area.

Six speakers gave their testimony about how Interweave had impacted their lives, led by John Cooper and Sarah Rosen of Short Hills, both former Board Presidents. Other speakers included Robert J. Festa, retired Vice-President of the Paul Corporation and a founding Trustee, and Episcopal Bishop Mark Beckwith, a participant during the early years of his ministry. The Rev. Lisa Green of Christ Church, Short Hills concluded the reminiscences by speaking of programs emphasizing creativity and women's spirituality.

The mission of Interweave at its inception three decades ago was to offer a wide variety of programs that strengthen wellness, deepen spirituality and promote the common good. "Interweave hasn't changed the core of its mission", commented the Rev. Dr. Robert Corin Morris, Interweave founder and Executive Director, "but the times have changed, as all these subjects and concerns have moved from the margins to the mainstream in American life. And Interweave has developed into an extended network of people committed to continual learning about attitudes and actions that can make their own lives, communities and world a better place." Also, Interweave is a major partner in the interfaith community, both locally and in the wider area, fostering interfaith dialogue and joint action, such as the Newark Interfaith Coalition for Hope and Peace, founded in 2007 with Jewish, Christian and Muslim leadership.

Interweave offers a full range of classes, from meditation, yoga and dream workshops, to courses on spirituality and wellness designed to help participants learn how to live with each other and with the Earth. For more information about Interweave and its programs, visit or call (908) 277-2120.
