On October 12, 2002 St. Petersburg Times reported that "a cordial interfaith session [was] organized by the [B'nai Israel of St. Petersburg] synagogue's adult studies program. The occasion was studiously free of politics, steering clear of Israel, the Palestinians and other contentious issues. Barry Augenbraun, a member of Congregation B'nai Israel and an active member of the Jewish community, said he was not disappointed that Israel was not discussed."
