Next Children of Abraham program to be held Dec. 5

The objective of Children of Abraham, a local interfaith initiative, is fostering communication and understanding between faiths. Its first program, “Under the Tent,” which was held last spring, was attended by 200 individuals for the learning experience and small group discussions. The initiative invites members of different faiths from around the area to explore the differences and common history between Christianity, Islam and Judaism.
At the next program – “Shabbat, Sunday, Jum’ah” – Jews, Christians and Muslims will explore and discuss their congregational days of prayer. The event will take place on Sunday, December 5, from 2-5 pm, at Temple Israel in Vestal. Childcare will be available.
