Salam Shalom Conversations with our Jewish and Muslim cousins in the WNY area

August 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us for Salam Shalom Conversations with our Jewish and Muslim cousins in the WNY area. Salam Shalom Conversation is promoting dialogue for peace and balance between our faith communities.

Dr. Yonina Foster rejoined the Buffalo community in mid-2017 and offers creative services, has led or co-led religious services, song, and education since her return here. The program will include Torah references, Jewish ethics, and songs in a participatory program.

Conversations first began with Dr. Yonina Andrea Foster and Ms. Farina Mirza, and founder, Professor Faizon Haq, of WNY Muslims, after Rabbi Alex Lazarus-Klein directed Foster to speak with Ms. Mirza. While Dr. Foster’s Muslim friends in Germantown, Maryland, helped begin her journey of understanding between the faiths, she was further spurred to action after the New Zealand massacre where Muslims at prayer were murdered.

Light Kosher snacks served
