What do Jewish, Christian and Muslim Scriptures teach about serving humanity? Congregation Sinai, Lincoln Glen Church and Baitul Basir Mosque invite you to join us for a panel discussion with Rabbi Joshua Berkenwald, Pastor Larry Albright, and Imam Mubasher Ahmad. Meet your neighbors and learn about the unifying teachings from our Sacred Texts which can guide our communities to cooperate and collaborate in service to the poor, suffering and marginalized.
