CAIR-OHIO JOINS INTERFAITH IFTAR HOSTED BY CHURCH
(COLUMBUS, OH 10/11/06) – On Thursday, October 19, the Columbus office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Ohio Chapter (CAIR-OH) has been invited to an interfaith iftar hosted by St. James Episcopal Church.
This is the 2nd year the two organizations have gathered for this interfaith event. Last year over 20 members from St. James’ congregation hosted a group of Muslims in the daily breaking of the fast during the month of Ramadan as part of their community outreach and spiritual growth. This is one of a series of interfaith events that are being planned between CAIR-Ohio and St. James.
“Interfaith events are crucial in building bridges between different communities and different faiths,” said CAIR-Ohio Director Adnan Mirza. “We have an excellent relationship with the St. James community and this event will only strengthen that bond.”
Community members interested in attending the interfaith Iftar are encouraged to call the CAIR-Ohio Office at 614-451-3232.
