The Interfaith Institute of the Islamic Center of Long Island

Presents: “Know Your Neighbors: Shared Multi-Faith Experiences of 25 years on Long Island”

Years before the Islamic Center of Long Island launched its Interfaith Institute in October 2015, the powerful spirit of interfaith dialogue and friendship had come alive locally in the form of the Long Island Multi-Faith Forum. Now, those two gently flowing streams of understanding among faiths will come together in a program designed by leaders of the Multi-Faith Forum and hosted by the Interfaith Institute, at ICLI’s mosque in Westbury.

The idea for this gathering came from two veterans of the Multi-Faith Forum: Dr. Panna Shah and the Rev. Tom Goodhue, the retired executive director of the Long Island Council of Churches. Given their commitment to the interfaith ideal, it’s no surprise that both also serve on the board of the Interfaith Institute.

The event’s theme is:
“Know Your Neighbors—Shared Multi-Faith Experiences of 25 Years on Long Island.” Dr. Shah has asked Rev. Goodhue to moderate the panel, filled with speakers she recruited from nearly every faith community that has participated in the forum. Dr. Faroque A. Khan, founder of the Interfaith Institute, will welcome those who attend the program. Arvind Vora, a pioneer of the Multi-Faith  Forum, will offer a closing summary after the panel discussion.

Please join us for this celebration of Long Island’s long interfaith history.
