On March 20, the “Spiritus” group met for a Jewish-Christian Habitat for Humanity Build Day in North Nashville. “Spiritus” is an interfaith group of Christian and Jewish Nashvillians, formed in 2019, who explore and live shared experience of their faith together. The group is led by Dr. Jon Roebuck, Executive Director for The Reverend Charlie Curb Center for Faith Leadership and Rabbi Mark Schiftan and meets weekly via zoom to discuss the intersection of faith and culture.
The Habitat for Humanity Build Day marks the first time the group has been together in person. “Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville is delighted to welcome Spiritus to the build site this year for their first build experience,” said a representative from Habitat for Humanity. “We are also delighted to be the host of the first in-person gathering of this special and unique faith organization.”
