A Talk To Bridge Religious & Cultural Differences
10/14/2012 (Updated 10:24:20 PM)Binghamton is a diverse community and its leaders are always looking for ways to bridge cultural and religious differences and promote understanding, tolerance, and acceptance.
On Sunday at Temple Concord in Binghamton a talk on interfaith tolerance was held . It was hosted by the Children of Abraham Interfaith Dialogue Group.
Hundreds of people from the Southern Tier came to hear speaker Zainab Al-Suwaij, who is the co-founder of the American Islamic Congress. She spoke about the challenges and hopes of multi-religious America.
"Once we get to know one another as people, we get to not only see what we have in common and what we share, but we can learn and gain great wisdom and richness in our lives by learning about the differences we have as well," said Rabbi Barbara Goldman-Wartel of Temple Concord.
"I am honored to address very important issues that we all care about and keen to make a difference in our world," said speaker Zainab Al-Suwaij
The group's next event will be a multi-faith panel at the Jewish Community Center on December 16th.
