Open-Faith Salon: Ecumenical Exploration of Forgiveness

Interfaith Panel.

Sunday, September 11 – 7 – 9:30 pm.

Location: Chochmat HaLev.

In this first of three Open-Faith Salons, we will explore the theme of forgiveness from a Jewish, Muslim/Sufi, Christian and native Hawaiian perspective. Like the European-inspired salons of yore, this will be an evening of shared stories and practices, spiritual edification and dialogue involving leaders and members of different faith communities. At a time when so many people are erecting walls to keep “others” out, we seek to build bridges of understanding made up of our shared values and aspirations. This gathering is our special way of marking the 15th anniversary of 9-11.

The Open-Faith Salon is dedicated to the memory and legacy of Sheikh Ibrahim Baba Farajaje whose work to build bridges between different faith communities remains an inspiration to all who seek to create peace and understanding through interfaith dialogue.

Speakers include:
Estelle Frankel, Jewish,
Imam Yassir Chadly, Sufi-Muslim,
Sheikh Issa Nessim, Sufi-Muslim,
Reverend Michael Burch,Northbrae Church,
and Isa Gucciardi, Hawaiian Ho’oponopono and others.
Donations accepted.
