Interfaith Bridge Builders Left New York on 9/11 to Visit 18 Cities Xavier University to be their 9/21 stop
On the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Muslim, Jewish and Christian clergy embarked on a 15-day, 18-city tour to combat religious intolerance. They will engage in interfaith dialogue and share their views of the most important lessons from 9/11. They will be hosted by Rabbi Abie Ingber of Cincinnati’s Xavier University on September 21 from 5-6 pm in the Gallagher Student Center ClockTower Lounge.
Imam Yahya Hendi and Rabbi Gerald Serotta are president and executive director, respectively, of Clergy Beyond Borders. Hendi is also the Muslim chaplain at Georgetown University and a member of the Islamic Jurisprudence Council of North America. Serotta is also founding chair of Rabbis for Human Rights-North America.
“As Jews, Christians, and Muslims we believe that freedom of religion is threatened when any faith is singled out for attack,” Serotta says. Other CBB members are on the tour. Rev. Dr. Adam Bunnell, a Franciscan Friar and Roman Catholic priest, is special assistant to the president for international and interfaith relations at Bellarmine University. Rev. Steve Martin is executive director of the New Evangelical Partnership for the Common Good. Dates and cities on the tour are:
