Confronting Islamophobia

May 6-7, 2011
      An interfaith conference of Jews, Christians and Muslims which gave the opportunity for individuals and organizations to show their support for respect and understanding for Americans of all faiths and engaged the Jewish, Christian and Muslim communities in better understanding and developing strategies to combat the rising Islamaphobia in our community


A Brief Report

At the interfaith service concluding the Confronting Islamophobia conference (May 6-7, 2011) at Saint Mark's Cathedral, Rabbi James Mirel opened his remarks saying "...let it be well noted, a Jew called Muslims to prayer in a Christian church. That one sentence says it all!"

The goal of the conference was to educate the public on the rising hatred in the US toward Islam.


The conference was a resounding success! But read on, your help is still needed.
