The forum is sponsored by Interfaith Women’s Initiative (IWI), and hosted by Darul Islah Mosque, 320 Fabry Terrace, Teaneck, 07666.
All are welcome to attend this free event – men and women. The doors will open at 3:30 p.m. and the program will begin promptly at 4 p.m. The speakers - Rabbi Rachel Grant Meyer, the Reverend Beate Storck, and Dr. Heba Elkhateeb - will each make a presentation on how Judaism, Christianity, and Islam interpret their religious texts and traditions as a guide to view and interact with “strangers,” both in the past and present. They will also reflect on how these religious beliefs may lead to action in our own day. There will be a Q & A session, as well as two short prayer breaks for Muslim attendees. The mosque will host refreshments and conversation at the end of the evening. Please contact the Rev. Lynne Bleich Weber at email@example.com if you plan to attend, or have any questions.
