CAIR-KY HOSTS INTERFAITH DINNER CELEBRATING ABRAHAM'S LEGACY
The Kentucky chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-KY) recently held an interfaith dinner marking Eid ul-Adha, the holiday at the end of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, in which members of the Christian, Jewish and Muslim communities celebrated the life and legacy of the Prophet Abraham.
CAIR-KY's dinner, with the theme "Abraham: Celebrating the Spirit of Sacrifice," included speeches from leaders of the Kentucky Jewish and Christian communities.
Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) Secretary-General Dr. Munir Fareed spoke on behalf of the Muslim community. The event was just the most recent of numerous interfaith gatherings sponsored by CAIR-KY. CAIR-KY was established in 2004 and serves the growing Muslim population of Kentucky.
