The Tri-Faith Initiative


Three Faith Leaders to Visit Omaha

Leaders of the three faith groups who make up the Tri-Faith Initiative will be in Omaha to speak at the Tri-Faith event scheduled for March 27, 2009.  Rabbi Peter Knobel, president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, Dr. Ingrid Mattson, president of The Islamic Society of North America and Presiding Bishop Katherine Jefferts Schori of The Episcopal Church will meet in Omaha.

The evening will include evening prayer services for the three faith groups, followed by a dinner and conversation about peace in our time.  Large screens and audio systems will allow 1000+ people to sit in on their conversation.  We also plan to create a video of the event which can be broadcast later.

The Program Planning committee will be meeting Nov. 19 at Temple Israel.
