Women are mirrored in Each Other: An Interfaith Dialogue
March 1, 2012 - USFMEP hosted its annual inter-faith dialogue between Jewish, Muslim and Christian women. USFMEP believes that it is fundamental to bring together women of different faiths to facilitate understanding and tolerance among the varied faiths of the world, as women play a key role in the fight toward harmony and peaceful existence. During the course of this event, the women discussed their visions on how to eradicate religious intolerance and discrimination; two of the main sources of religious violence. Dialogue is crucial in strengthening relations and building acceptance, thereby preventing violent uprising among religious groups.
