Interfaith exhibition in Thornhill celebrates three different faiths

Sept. 2, 2014

An Interfaith Exhibition - From the Roots of Abraham - will be presented Saturday, Sept. 13 at 3 p.m. at the Jaffari Community Centre, 9000 Bathurst St., Thornhill.

This interfaith exhibition offers Jewish, Christian and Muslim men and women an opportunity to enhance their knowledge of each other’s faiths.

By designing exhibits that teach about the three faith traditions and learning about the practices of other faiths, organizers hope to increase understanding and respect for all the Abrahamic religions.

Prophet Abraham championed the concept of monotheism and is admired and beloved by the three major faith traditions of Christianity, Judaism and Islam. This consensus among faiths makes Prophet Abraham an interfaith icon and provides members of these faiths with an opportunity to celebrate commonalities.

More than ever before, in these times of conflict and mistrust, building positive relationships in a global village among all people is vital, say organizers.

Join in celebrating a common heritage Saturday, Sept. 13 at the Mulla Asghar Memorial Library & Islamic Resource Centre, located within the Jaffari Community Centre on Bathurst Street, in Vaughan.

The launch of the exhibition will be preceded by an international interfaith panel reflecting on the Joy of Giving.
