Niagara Foundation organizes Dinner of Abrahamic Traditions every year for the purpose of strengthening friendship and understanding among three Abrahamic Traditions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
We proudly host a diverse group of guests, including clergy from churches, synagogues, and mosques, academicians from universities and seminaries, and leaders of many charitable and civic organizations.
Conflicts, Violence and Religion
Some of the questions that the speakers will try to address:
– What does our religious tradition and scriptures teach about violence?
– Whether & how is violence ever justified?
– Do people abuse religion to justify their violent tactics?
– Is religion the source or victim of extremism?
– How do the Abrahamic Religions approach conflict resolution?
