I am a congregant at Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church. I attended a wonderful event at your mosque last June. I see you will have another anti-hatred event this coming Sunday. May I also forward it to the faculty at the Quaker school where I teach? I know many that would like to attend, but wanted to check with you first before spreading the invitation
Our apologies for a delayed response.
Yes, in the future, please extend our invite to anyone who would like to join us in uniting against any and all kind of hatred.
Have a blessed day.
I am extremely proud to have participated in this afternoon’s Faiths United Against Hatred event hosted by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Baltimore Chapter. I am proud that so many Chevrei Tzedek current (and former) members were present. I am proud of our member Deborah Steinig who gave a really moving presentation that highlighted Judaism’s central message of tolerance but also expressed her anguish over how to bring our children (personal and communal) through this difficult time. I am proud to be a friend and neighbor of Mansoor Shams, who spoke powerfully about how he was shaken by the recent election but feels confident in his Muslim community’s response and that he and his community do not have any plan to leave America. I am proud of Dr. Faheem Younus, who called all the children present to the stage afterwards so that they would see that there are many of us adults who are NOT against them. I am proud that my son is good friends with a Muslim boy and that they never question whether a Jew and a Muslim should be good friends.
I hope that we can have many more of these interfaith stands of unity and I would love for Chevrei Tzedek to host a similar gathering in the future. We will plan. And, in the mean time, we will continue to support each other inside our community and throughout the Baltimore community to continue to spread a message of tolerance and hope.
